Now wouldn't that be a hoot?

I'm sure the next Oscar's would definitely have James Horner up for that category.

To me the Oscars are so full of crap, I think this new category would fit quite nicely.


Looking back Goldsmith and Elmer Bernstein might have been the Oscar leaders for Best Rejected Scores:

WALL STREET

2 DAYS IN THE VALLEY

ALIEN NATION

TIMELINE

THE JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN

GANGS OF NEW YORK

Correct me if I am wrong but I think I read somewhere that Goldsmith and Oliver Stone didn`t like each other or something like that and because of that JG did not write anything.

Add GOLDEN CHILD to this list.
Fantastic and epic score for not very good film (IMO!).

Thought I read in the Kritzerland "Alien Nation" booklet that material originally intended for "Wall Street" wound up forst in Jerry's unused AN score, then eventually in "Russia House."

In fact, look here:

http://www.kritzerland.com/alien_nation.htm

"Goldsmith’s score is very propulsive, and it has a great and memorable theme – that theme was originally written for but not used in Oliver Stone’s film, Wall Street. When the Alien Nation score was discarded, Goldsmith recycled the theme one more time and the third time was the charm – for the film The Russia House."

TORN CURTAIN - Bernard Herrmann
2001 - Alex North
PORTRAIT OF JENNIE - Bernard Herrmann
TROY - Gabriel Yared

THE EXORCIST - again Bernard Herrmann (though, actually, Herrmann rejected director Friedkin...)
MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY - Miklos Rozsa (although Rozsa had previous commitment)
FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE - (I think producer wanted Rozsa, but Rozsa demurred...)
THE GOOD EARTH - Arnold Schoenberg (Never wrote anything, because he asked producer Irving Thalberg during the interview how the film would be edited to his music...)
GREEN MANSIONS - Similar story with Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, who sent music to MGM, on the vague idea they would craft film around them. Some of his music remains in finished picture, but much of score is also original Bronislau Kaper.

Tom Scott's NEIGHBORS. I'm dead serious.

I'm not sure Herrmann actually wrote anything for PORTRAIT OF JENNIE that was rejected. I was under the impression that his lack of involvement in the project ended up having to do with scheduling conflicts, but he still contributed the song Jennie sings and receives a special thanks on the ending credits.

By the way, does Bernstein hold the record for most rejected scores? I think he had at least a dozen scores that were replaced.

Yes. Not counting demo cues/scores by other composers, Bernstein holds the record at 13 known replaced scores.

And interesting that several of them have had CD releases. That says a lot for his appeal among film music collectors, even if it wasn't always acknowledged by the filmmakers who hired him.

When compared to the ill-fitting jazz music that replaced it, Pino Donaggio's ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE is a shoo-in for that Oscar!

You can always start a topic about topics and running out.

Or you can start a topic about the Tropics and scores for movies set in the Tropics.

Okay, time for a beer.

Beer is the answer, and much better than the Oscars.
