Wonderful. I've heard this story before, but what a joy to see Jarre tell it. Thanks for posting.

Great story. Thanks for posting it. Did they ever say who the composer in New York was? If they did, I missed it.

What a wonderful composer Maurice Jarre was. In 6 weeks he composed one of the best film score to grace the screen!

Rogers wrote some score (maybe a dozen cues); there was a resource online I can't re-locate now that had paper work information and it included cue titles for the film, done by Rogers. I don't know if he recorded anything.

Walton/Khatchaturian/Arnold hated the film and turned it down.

Britten wanted too long to score it.

Jarre said that he viewed 40 hours of footage from the movie. I wonder how much of that footage still exists. It was an extraordinary accomplishment to compose and record that score in just 6 weeks.
