Just an interesting tidbit: Randy Newman left the project over creative differences long before the score was finished. William Ross wrote most of it, using Randy's themes.

Chris, I'm not sure where you heard that, but after reading it I checked with some friends who were at the sessions, and it's not true. What actually happened was that on the final day, one cue needed a little work doing on it and since Randy didn't have time to do it, William Ross did the rearrangement and Randy let him conduct it.

Then, a later day of pickup sessions was needed after the film was re-edited slightly and Randy couldn't fit that into his schedule so again, Ross stepped in. We are not talking here about Ross writing "most of it", he just made a few minor changes to a few cues. As the orchestrator and effectively Randy's "assistant" for the score, this is very normal practice and happens on any number of films in a year.

If you want to check with Randy's manager, mail me privately for her address.

James

I see. It must have been one of those things that got blown out of proportion. Maybe the person had a vendetta or something. I apologize for being incorrect.
