Fanfare for a Death Scene was one of a handful of TV dramas originally presented on NBC's Kraft Suspense Theatre, then reedited for European theatrical release. Richard Egan stars as an American secret agent, on the trail of a vanished scientist. Egan must recover the scientist's revolutionary secret formula before the Enemy catches up with his quarry first. Musician Al Hirt, a hot property in 1964 thanks to his recording of "Java", provides the jazz background score. Fanfare for a Death Scene was first shown in feature-film form in the US on local television, as part of Universal's syndicated movie package.
