JEFF ALEXANDER was born on JULY 2,1910 in SEATTLE , WASHINGTON.He scored over 40 features from the 50's into the 70's.

"Day of the Evil Gun" is a very enjoyable score, like a Goldsmith/Morricone hybrid, and totally unlike his earlier MGM Westerns. His Twilight Zone "Come Wander With Me" score is a cult favorite. Just watched a movie called "Slander"(1957) he scored, not bad. The opening credits are reminiscent of the old Universal programer titles.

Ah, Monsieur Talgorn. Absolutely love ROBOTJOX and THE TEMP.

Based on the clip at YouTube, DELTA FORCE 2 could do with a re-issue.

It's interesting looking so far in a 5 month period the life expectancy of film composers. Unlike artists in other fields of music, rock ,etc those who have died so far there have been few early deaths and tragedies. All things consider. Some have lived to a old ripe age and some have fallen into a sought of average life expectancy bracket. Mind you these are those who have passed on, some many years ago as well. Meanwhile there are plenty listed here who are still going strong who are up there in age. Here is what I currently got from early FEBRUARY TILL NOW.---------------------- 90's-7-80's-24-70's-19-60's-24-[tie there] 50's-10-40's-3-30's-1 20's -1. --As one can see only 5 have died so far under 50.
