>Antediluvian Priestess: "House--
"Leave it to Baker to support an unknown aganst the greats."<

Leave it to Antediluvian Priestess/California Couple/Spiritual Architect/etc. to ignorantly not know that most of the world regards Georges Delerue as one of the greatest - if not thee greatest - of all film composers... and then proceed to blinding vote down this choice because they believe I am perversely picking a contrarian selection of no importance. Shows what they know and care about this subject.

Max Steiner is not one of "the greats"... he's a modestly talented hack with an overblown reputation based on a few Big Event movies.
Small movies can be fine, and even have great things about them. The writing and performances and -- above all the score -- of 'Our Mother's House', are the great things about this unjustly forgotten movie. But not all people forgot, or are happy in their darkness.
As I pointed out earlier, Spielberg used Delerue's incomparable genius music from 'Our Mother's House' as a temp-score in the editing of 'The Color Purple', before getting his own boy to do an imitation-Delerue knockoff.

In short, you guys don't know what the *beep* you're talking about (as usual,) and are putting your spite before any other considerations.
To call Delerue an "unknown" (this, the same composer who Scorsese lifts to support 'Casino') shows the lack of interest you have in film music, or your dedication as trolls.

An epic movie is not a requirement for a great score. That's childish thinking, cut off from real world experience. True greatness is not necessarily a massive popular success every time out of the gate. It rarely is, to my taste.
But those who know nothing about something, would do well to be silent on the subject, and not voice outlandishly arrogant assumptions.

Take a poll of the world's great film composers today, and far more are going to cite Delerue as one of the giants, than Jarre, or Shore, or Zimmer, or Steiner.
You want to crush what you don't know. This is xenophobia run rampant, and you cultural bubble-boys ought to realize there's a whole world out there you're missing out on, that isn't getting force fed through that narrow tube.

Re: "Voting against you doesn't make someone ignorant."

Yes it does. I'm not stating this fact to be mean. "Ignorant" is a neutral way to describe it, and perfectly accurate. There's plenty I am ignorant of as well, but I don't go around parading it proudly, and maligning someone else's favorite as a "nobody".

You're right, though, whether you meant to phrase it this way or not: it's *voting against me* that I object to, instead of taking the composer into fair consideration.
But why should I expect anything else from Antediluvian Priestess/California Couple/Spiritual Architect/ et alia, who have been trolling me for Months like this on other threads.

I'm sorry you don't know the history between us, Gene Bivins, and I really don't care to go into it, as I'm trying the best I can not to hold a grudge, but this voting down things out of blind ignorance is not acceptable to me unless the score, and the composer, truly is unavailable to hear. But that is far from the truth. I didn't pick it for some odd, perverse reason.

I've already provided one link above, on Amazon, where the 'Our Mother's House' score can be purchased. It's even clickable.
I've also provided youtube links in the past to this score. This *is* voting against me based on an idiotic grudge they have, not based on the score, which those three are being willfully ignorant about. That is the proper phrase.

Many other scores by Georges Delerue are widely available:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=Georges+Delerue

They've probably even seen a few of the movies he's scored (plenty towards the end of his career are mainstream Hollywood movies) :

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000016/

If I wanted to pick a more popular score, I would have suggested 'Black Robe', 'Agnes of God', or 'Salvador'. But I was trying to pick the best score he's responsible for, and it happened to be an English-language horror movie from 1967, which is currently out of print as a video, but not as a soundtrack.

Re: "It's not on Netflix."

Many great things are not on Netflix.

Baker,

Look at the composers and the films that were choosen.

Georges Delerue was a great composer but choosing an obscure film rather than his Oscar winning score (A Little Romance) or one of his many Truffaut films (Day for Night / Last Metro).

Goldsmith - Chinatown is a great film but he did many that were better (Patton / Under Fire / Hoosiers)

Bernard Herrman - the score for CK was the least impressive part of the movie he did much better any of his Hitchcock films (Psycho / NBNW)

Hans Zimmer - choosing the Lion King, a good portion of the score was co written by Lebo M. Again he has many better scores.

I am guessing the guy who started this choose some popular names and choose their most famous film

Movie Mania,

First, I want to say that I completely agree that most of the selections on here are great composers, yet the movies given for each tend not to be each's best work.
I would say they tend instead to be the best-known work of each, generally speaking (although why Herrmann's first score for Orson Welles was chosen over his greatest work with Hitchcock, I have no idea... I'd probably be voting for Herrmann if the choice was 'Vertigo').

For the last time, I didn't choose the film 'Our Mother's House' because it was obscure. I choose it because it had the best score. I'm sorry people can't just go out and rent it, but the score itself is not hard to find. One could even download it for free it they were inclined.
I would have been disingenuous to pick 'A Little Romance', or 'Beaches', or 'Black Robe', much as I like those scores, because I think he did his best work in Europe.
I can promise you, though, those three posters I mentioned would be voting Delerue down regardless of which film was chosen. I knew this would happen with Masaru Satô too (probably the best modern Japanese composer, and the last great Asian composer for the movies). It's because I chose it, not because of the content of the score (which I doubt they will ever hear).

I love Delerue's work in France and the UK above all else.
Namely, his work with Truffaut --

Music from the Films of Francois Truffaut by Georges Delerue
(inexpensive CD)

-- and Jack Clayton:

The Music of Georges Delerue for the Films of Jack Clayton: The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne / The Pumpkin Eater / Our Mother's House / Something Wicked This Way Comes

For his American work, I highly recommend 'The Day of the Dolphin' and 'Silkwood'.
