Just wanted to share with you all.

My sister went to a SOMEWHERE IN TIME Event some years ago, where they filmed the movie and director Jeannot Szwarc was there. I asked to her to ask him about working with Film Composers and this is what she came up with for me. Szwarc was totally cool and gracious to all the guests and fans.

Enjoy this Rare "one of a kind" footage! Thanks Sis, Great job!

First Ciip is a very short Intro and then clip 2 is more involved.

Enjoy!

Nice. My ex-wife worked with him several times over the years, and I did the same thing. The man worked with the best of them.

He has made some terrible films. great scores though, so he is forgiven.

I looked it up too, it is nice he can still work in entertainment.
Supergirl is a terrific score that he let Jerry make, for that, he deserves credit.

I worked with him on COLD CASE around 2008 or so. Really nice guy. Man, he really got to work on some big movies for a time there.

A pity no one asked about Mark Shreeve's score to Honor Bound (1988).

Someone might have if anyone had ever heard of that composer or that movie.

Speaking of "Somewhere In Time," I think that it was probably in the "Back To Somewhere In Time" featurette on the "Collector's Edition" of the DVD that actress Jane Seymour explains how she tried to get her pal John Barry to do the music for the film then being made, although she knew the production couldn't afford him. But he chose to do it anyway, and not only created a soundtrack for the ages, but also made a sharp turn in his own career. Up until then he was known for his haunting scores from the 1960s, often lovely, often quite propulsive, as in his themes for more of the James Bond movies than anyone else and wonderful scores like "King Rat." But after his transformative "Somewhere In Time," he went on to write similarly gorgeous scores for "Out of Africa" and "Dances With Wolves," and there were elements of his "Time" loveliness in other films he would do, like "Peggy Sue Got Married," "Until September," and "Mercury Rising." I'll always be grateful that Seymour stepped up and asked him to score her film. It's hard for instrumental soundtrack lovers to single out a single composer, which is somewhat like asking a parent to name a favorite child; but, for me, John Barry remains at the very top of a great list of amazing composers, and I think that most of us continue to miss him and always will. But what a legacy he left us!

Somewhere In Time does, indeed, seem to be an epochal film in Barry's career.

It's impossible to know to what extent this was a factor, but of course both of Barry's parents died that year and Barry could not attend the UK for the outstanding writs against him. It has been supposed that these events created the space in which Somewhere In Time was written.

But then again, that could just be fanciful, apocryphal fan thinking. I'm not sure if I've ever heard it from Barry himself that these circumstances spurred him on with that score.

Cheers

I remember reading an interview with Barry where he was asked about what had influenced him when composing 'Somewhere In Time' and his response was to tell the interviewer to 'mind their own business', or words to that effect.

It's hard to imagine a fellow Yorkshireman being as blunt as that, Peter.

Speak for yourself. Just because you don't know them doesn't mean no one else does.

Someone's clearly heard of him and the movie but I think it's fair to say that the people filming and asking questions were more interested in John Barry.

Nice little commentary from the director of "Somewhere In Time" about John Barry and his music for his film.

Can somebody name another director who had the great fortune of working with John Williams, John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith and Henry Mancini in less than seven years ?

Probably no one else with THAT combo, but Dick Donner had the great fortune to work with Goldsmith, Williams, and Barry within a space of 3 films over 4 years.
