    ... James Bernard, the composer of the famous Hammer scores, won one Oscar - but not for his music! He won an Oscar, together with Paul Dehn, for a screenplay in 1952, for "Seven Days to Noon". This was also John Addison's first feature film. He wan an Oscar (for his music) to Tom Jones (1963).

    I think actually he took the credit for cleaning ovens which had actually been cleaned by Nicholas Dodd.

    The fact about James Bernard was also one of my early True / False questions when the thread was on the old Scorereviews site. cool

    Can't remember how I worded it though?

    Not quite; should check out my site.


    Did you know many successful television composers got their start ghosting for Mike Post on such shows as "Magnum, pi", "The Rockford Files", "The A-Team", etc. In fact, very few of them haven't gotten good standing of cult series.

    ... that Dominic Frontiere (Hang 'Em High, The Stunt Man, Color of Night) spent some time in jail?

    From Wikipedia:

    Criminal career

    In 1986, Frontiere entered a federal penitentiary for nine months of incarceration. Frontiere had scalped tickets to the 1980 Super Bowl, tickets he obtained through his ex-wife, Los Angeles Rams owner Georgia Frontiere. He was estimated to have scalped as many as 16,000 tickets, making a half million dollars in profit that he failed to report to the IRS. Frontiere pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year and a day in prison, three years probation, and fined $15,000 for failing to report income from the sale of the tickets and for lying to the Internal Revenue Service. (Sports Illustrated, June 30, 1986; New York Times, November 5, December 9 [3] and December 10, 1986)

  3. As did a legion of orchestrators. Even so they used some library music, too. Steiner worked himself into the ground on this one.
    I once read F. Scott Fitzgerald had a hand in on-the-fly sript revisions.
    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.

    ....Alan Silvestri has his own vineyard.

    Yes, you all knew that. But I just wanted to ressurect this trivia thread. I'm sure we all have many trivia notes to share about our favourite composers.
