One of my all time favorite Character Actors and Actors period.

What a wonderful career he had from brilliant child actor to adult.

What is your favorite score of a film that Roddy appeared in?

Roddy bringing sexy back to the max!

He is truly missed!

Fave score for me would be CLEOPATRA - Alex North. Also great, HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY, SHOCK TREATMENT, PLANET OF and ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES and HELLO DOWN THERE.

Always thought that if James Horner was an actor, he'd be a brilliant Roddy in a Bio-Pic!

Roddy was wonderful as Octavian.

Not that Roddy had anything to do with any of the scores written for the films he was in.

However, am partial to "How Green Was My Valley" (Alfred Newman), "Cleopatra" (Alex North) and "Evil Under the Sun" (an adaptation of Cole Porter standards).

Although maybe not a big favourite I thought Roddy was very good in Five Card Stud(1968) and I think that the Maurice Jarre score deserves a release on CD.

Wow, what a coincidence!! Yesterday I watched the 1991 TV movie Deadly Game, where McDowell did a good job. Nice score by Tim Truman.

Other notable scores:

The Legend Of Prince Valiant - Exchange
Overboard - Alan Silvestri
Fright Night - Brad Fiedel

I thought this was a thread based on his recent passing, but I see that he passed away in 1998.

Looking at his IMDB profile, I can really only think of one great score that is also a personal favourite among his films and that is of course PLANET OF THE APES.

I don't know if this counts, but he sang as "Mordred" in the OBC of Lerner & Loewe's "Camelot."

His "Seven Deadly Virtues" is an angry, sarcastic delight on the cast album.

. . . And . . .



I don't know the actual episodes' composer credits, but maybe Hefti and/or Nelson Riddle?

Jerry Goldsmith's Planet of the Apes is fantastic, of course, and will likely remain my favorite score for a Roddy McDowall movie even if I ever get to hear every one ever done.

Planet of the Apes is a classic.

Fright Night Part II is great and one of my most wanted grails.

Besides a number already mentioned, I have two favorites, one released, one not - and both perfect for Halloween:

Dead of Winter - get the fabulous Kritzerland release now!
(http://www.kritzerland.com/dewinter.htm)

Legend of Hell House.

PLANET OF THE APES, of course. Next to that, probably CLEOPATRA, then HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY, and then LORD LOVE A DUCK? (The question mark is, I believe, part of the actual title.), then THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE, then......

And, if you think PLANET OF THE APES was the first time Roddy McDowall worked with the guy behind the makeup in my avatar, check this out (unfortunately only the first 9 minutes, 45 seconds).

Shirley Walker & Harvey Cohen's music for the episodes "Mad as a Hatter" and "Perchance to Dream" from BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.
