Meaning not just me n' dan.

Rules - no Googling or checking books! I actually asked this one before. Let's see if anyone remembers... Don't all post at the same time! Oh, and another thing, I'm not ALWAYS here, so you don't need me to tell you that you're right before you post your own question.

For which film did James Bernard win his only Oscar?

(Hint - it's a bit of a sneaky question. Don't be angry with me).

That question is bread n' butter for me Graham. I'll let someone else have a crack at it.

Go on Timmer! If you don't blurt it out now, we'll all think you don't really know. It's only ever me, you n' dan on these threads anyway!

Correct, bobyaco! Shared with co-writer and partner Paul Dehn! We can assume now that Timmer didn't know at all. Hey, this'll be a real swingin' party once dan appears. Me, Timmer, bobyaco, dan...

Here's an easy one. James Bernard wrote all his scores himself, except for one film where he wrote half the score and Don Banks composed the other half. Film title?

Maybe TG would like a crack at this one before it becomes an anthology of questions? wink

This thread's gone all funny and surreal.

I'm going to guess... Kiss of the Vampire?

Dan's here and if I may I will answer it TORTURE GARDEN-67-An anthology film with a cast that included PETER CUSHING, JACK PALANCE, BURGESS MEREDITH, MAURICE DENHAM, ROBERT HUTTON,the always reliable MICHAEL RIPPER ETC ETC. AMICUS films made the film and after being so successful in America with DR TERROR'S HOUSE OF PANCAKES[OOPS HORRORS] THAT WAS GOOD BOY CHRISTOPHER LEE'S JOKE ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE] with Paramount in 65 Amicus started a string of anthology movies. This one was not quite as successful as DR Terror, but it did good for Columbia on a double bill with BESERK-67 A film with Joan Crawford and Michael Gough.Milton Subotsky I would like to mention was a nice guy,. Although he was not one to deal with when he was on a creative streak[nothing wrong with that]. he was a good man with good morals and he stated often he like doing films where if the character does do something bad or is a bad guy he will pay the price.I loved that.

Since our friend MR Watt is probably snoring away over there in Spain now. I will ask a question in the genre.What composer scored 3 well known genre films in the 70's one, a horror hit in 76, two, a Horror science fiction hit in 79 and three, a Science fiction space opera in 79?

TORTURE GARDEN.
Banks’ last film score, composed in 1970 in collaboration with James Bernard.

Anarchy abounds on this thread. It's like we've all got everybody else on "ignore"!

Good guess, Hedji, about the Bernard/ Banks question. Not KISS OF THE VAMPIRE, although I think that Douglas Gamley helped out with a few source cues on that one, so you get half a point.

It is indeed TORTURE GARDEN (bobyaco - I think you're a few years out with the year, but I'll give you a point for the correct title. Actually, I won't, since dan posted first).

dan, I think you might be talking about Jerry Goldsmith (THE OMEN, ALIEN and STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE)?

TO GRAHAM- yes the answer was Jerry Goldsmith. What happens sometimes on this board is I think we have to realize the mindset of many people. They are on the go most of the day, they will see a question , don't have time to go through the whole thread and give a answer not realizing they are giving a repeated answer. This has happened to me a few times in the past. It looks worst then it actually is.We don't mean to be rude at all, but in this fast moving world we live in, that's the way it is. That's why when somebody does not answer right back, some people like I did yesterday will say off to work or some say, I am going to bed for the night.

TG = Torture Garden ( I was making out that TallGuy might like to have a try but I highlighted the letters as a clue because I'm a bloody smartass I am )

I mentioned 'anthology' ( because I'm a bloody smartass I am )

Here is a bit of a tough one folks , but those are the fun ones. I rarely did genre films in my long prolific film music career. However I did a genre score for DISNEY[YES DISNEY] it was rejected. But the score has gotten a following from Film score fans. Who am I?

Bleedin' 'ell Timmer, I'm thick. Didn't click at all!

dan - I'm not sure, but are you referring to Georges Delerue's original score for SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES? I might be wrong with that, but I'm going to post another question anyway -

Which one of the following composers was NOT involved in writing a score for any of the umpteen TV or film versions of "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde"?

Franz Waxman
Monty Norman
Bob Cobert
Carl Davis
James Bernard
Jerry Goldsmith
