CIRCLE OF IRON-78- is a nice score with a fine end theme by MR SMEATON. I also would recommend the film, it's a thought provoking effort with a great ending.

MICHAEL'S TERMS OF ENDEARMENT is a very touching theme that works perfectly with the sad emotional tale this film was.

Gore's Defending Your Life is a delightfully sweet score with a wonderful finale. His best work, imho.

Compared to most professions film composers have not faced as much tragic early deaths as others in the entertainment industry, This might be attribute to the fact they don't travel as much as singers and performers. As we know a good chunk of the tragic deaths has resulted during transport.
