4.0 out of 5 stars "Look out, he's got a leg!" May 18, 2011
Bill Conti's inspired score for the wacky Leslie Nielsen comedy WRONGFULLY ACCUSED finally gets its due in an Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1,500 copies, featuring the original session master recordings conducted by Conti. Produced by Morgan Creek Productions and written and directed by Pat Proft, a contributing writer for the classic Zucker Brothers comedies AIRPLANE! (1980) and the NAKED GUN trilogy, WRONGFULLY ACCUSED is a hilarious spoof of topnotch thrillers like THE FUGITIVE (1993), DARK PASSAGE (1947), and NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959) with a nonstop barrage of absurd sight gags led by the late Leslie Nielsen as a concert violinist framed for murder by a one-armed, one-eyed, one-legged Irish terrorist (Aaron Pearl)! With fine cast members like Michael York and Richard Crenna performing their cartoonish comedy with straight faces, Bill Conti's melodramatic score also dives into deadpan humor and emerges as an enjoyable lark.

Bill Conti was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1942, becoming a piano and composition major at Louisiana State University and later earning a Master's Degree at Juilliard School of Music in New York City. His claim to worldwide fame occurred when he was hired to compose the score for the boxing drama ROCKY (1976), with its sweeping theme "Gonna Fly Now" becoming the most popular song in July of 1977 after the film nabbed Oscar wins for Best Film Editing, Best Director, and Best Picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Williams-esque April 12, 2014
Surprisingly great score - was shocked to learn the symphonic bits were specially written for this film. Really beautiful music.
