Did you know that Pat Morita (Mr. Miyagi from THE KARATE KID) had a TV-Series called OHARA and Bill Conti provided the great jazzy theme? I remember working on the show once as an extra back in my L.A. extra work days. I think I was hired to play a young cop, but really don't recall the episode or details. I did so much extra work back in those days, that they all ran together. Also worked on CAGNEY & LACEY many times which also had an Awesome Jazzy Theme by the Bill Conti Man!

Here's Bill Conti's great OHARA (OHADA) Main Title Theme.

The cooking great Conti Main Title for CAGNEY & LACEY:

Conti's Season 7 version:

Season 1 had Meg Foster as Cagney instead of Sharon Gless and a Nelson Riddle Theme instead of Bill Conti's great theme which started with Season 2 with Gless.

Here's Riddle's inferior (IMHO) Main Title:

I venture to say that Conti's Hairstyle definitely deserved it's own Theme back then! Was he hanging with David Copperfield?
