Despite 06's epic & outside polling, perfectly composed by JOHN WILLIAMS (l932-) By AFI-(never televised though?)

 

My personal top 10 scores are still & perhaps always are>  (*-always indicates an Oscar winner)

1st (TIE) ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (l969) (Morricone) & his companion pc from 1984 ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA]

2nd MODERN TIMES( (l936) (Chaplin) & Smile)

3rd EAST OF EDEN (955) (Rosenman) (not even in this race?)

4. *THE GODFATHER (l972) (C. Coppola and Nino Rota)

5th fav of mine &THE GODFATHER, II (l974) (Coppola & Nino Rota)

6.  *ON THE WATERFRONT (l953) (Leonard Bernstein & J. Williams once said this & HIGH NOON were his own favs)

7. *JAWS (l975) (J. Williams)

8. *OUT OF AFRICA (l985) (J. Barry(

9. SOMEWHERE IN TIME (l980) (J. Barry) Now has gained a huge following & short a Mackinac Island)

& my own tenth  THE QUIET MAN (l952) (V. Young)

COMPOSERS>  MAX SEINER (l888-l97l) in a BLOW OUT!

2. *JOHN WILLIAMS

3rd favorite *ENNIO MORRIONE (l928-)(N0TE: Anybody else yet to see his 2015 Western Hateful-Eight, where he finally won???

4th composer ever> BERNHARD HERRMANN (9ll-75)

 

SCORES ASIDE THOUGH MY A #1 HERO & IDOL-(even barely over TRACY) is of course FRANCIS ALBERT SINATRA!!!

I'm a huge Band/Robbie Robertson fan.  I love the soundtracks for Goodfellas, The Color of Money and The Last Waltz.  Stella by Starlight in the Uninvited.  The music from Lawrence of Arabia.  Bernard Hermann (sp?) Hitchcock soundtracks.  I think the music is Street Scene - it is used in a number of opening movies.  Old Man River as sung by Paul Robeson in Show Boat (I hope it is okay to say during this political climate). I like the bittersweet music which underscores the bittersweet marriage story of Two For the Road.  Also like Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany's and Mancini's Pink Panther score.   Finally, although I could go on, the soundtrack from the original Fantasia (first movie I ever saw in a theatre).

To Spence:  I've seen The Last Waltz numerous times and the story-telling portions are some of the best parts.  I also read R. Robertson's memoir Testimony.  You spoke about Steve M.  I think he was also involved in Butch and Sundance (but, while he was the essence of cool and a marvelous actor, I don't think he was the easier person to work with).

I love the score of Chinatown by Jerry Goldsmith.  It's a great piece, it sets the tone of the movie without being intrusive.

If it's already been posted, sorry; It's worth repeating.
