GUEST,Frank Hamilton Movie Soundtracks (45) RE: Movie Soundtracks 21 Mar 06


I vote for the music for the opening of Midnight Cowboy. ("Everybody's Talkin' At Me" with Nilsson singing Fred Neil's tune).
Also, the same for Born Free although the rest of that picture wasn't as good as the opening in my opinion.

Jack Elliott was scheduled to do the score for "The Ballad of J. W. Coop" directed by Cliff Robertson (Charly). Jack missed a great opportunity due to a scheduling problem with a club in Michigan.
As a result, Cliff elected to have Don Randi do it and as a result, the film wasn't as good as it could have been with Jack's contribution.

Jerry Goldsmith did a great score for The Homecoming which was the precurser of The Waltons on T.V. I played on it and on the first couple of Walton installments. Jerry G. used autoharp,five-string banjo, harmonica and dulcimer. He is one of the few film composers who knows how to write for those instruments.

I also submit Silent Running, score by Peter Schikele of PDQ Bach.
I played on that as well.
