A Motion Picture produced especially for Television!!!

Love this Burt Bacharach Theme. Never knew Ed recorded it. Burt's music always brings back fond memories of being a kid and watching TV-Movies in the late 60's and early 70's.

Not to take away focus from the 69 ABC intro, but...

Does anyone know who composed the late 70's into early 80's ABC Sunday Night Movie Intro music (AKA ABC Star Tunnel).

I still get the chills thinking about how that music would prelude Superman and Star Trek (among others) getting my family all pumped up. Back in time when the voice of Ernie Anderson made watching a movie on TV a special event.

I know they are all on YouTube to enjoy, but have yet to find a name associated with the music itself.

Anyone know who's credited?

One source gives the following:

Theme (Sunday/Monday): "Star Tunnel: ABC Movie Theme"
[Probable dates of use: 1980 - 1984]

[BMI Title: "Star Tunnel Theme". The visual opening for the
network movie at this point was an animated sequence of
concentric stars in a receding tunnel perspective, hence the
title above.]

Composers: Ferdinand Jay Smith III (BMI), and
Jeffrey J. Tyzik (ASCAP)

Original Publishers: A B C/Dunhill Music, Inc. (BMI); and
American Broadcasting Music, Inc. (ASCAP)

1998 Publishers: ABC Circle Music, Inc. (BMI),
of New York, NY; and
American Broadcasting Music, Inc. (ASCAP),
of New York, NY

[as per copyright registration, "creation date"]:
Creation Date: 1980

Copyright Date: Nov. 3 1981; PAu-348-237.
