Hall of Fame Film Scores

Last October, the UK’s Classic FM assembled it 2015 Movie Music Hall of Fame by polling their listeners. I participated in the poll and chose three soundtracks I thought were integral to the character of their films. In other words, I can’t imagine these films without their soundtracks, and when I think of these films one of the first things that comes to mind is the music. Here’s my HOF candidates (listed in order):

To Kill a Mockingbird, 1962 (music by Elmer Bernstein)


On the Waterfront, 1954 (music by Leonard Bernstein)


High Noon, 1952 (music by Dimitri Tiomkin)
