It's possible jazz (or piano bar) source songs/music used in films as old as, say, Casablanca, The Killers (the Rozsa one) and others, becoming more and more acceptable, influenced the main film music itself... Hollywood had always needed time to accept new music forms, especially what was considered as "black" or "sex" music.

very interesting topic.

Hey, guess which musical instrument made a guest appearance in last night's film noir parody/homage episode of Fringe...? wink

Death Be Not Deadly, featuring Shire's Farewell, My Lovely music...and Mitchum's compulsive narration.

Can anyone direct me to a early detective or noir score that 'Farewell, My Lovely' is referencing.

I know scores like this, Chinatown, and Body heat are harkening back to earlier scores, but I don't know what or when.


I alway felt that it was directly influenced by The Big Sleep which needs a complete release either the original or a rerecording.

I brought this up some years ago in this thread; hope it helps:
