I scored over 70 films from the early 50's into the 80's. In the genre I am known for scoring some very atmospheric scores for a string of UNITED ARTISTS genre films in the 50's. I continue to do genre films later in my career with other films, a bunch for TV . WHO AM I?

Gerald fried was the co-composer with Fred Myrow on the film. I believe on the LP SOUNDTRACK, they just said FRED MYROW as the composer. Anyone out there know about the cd? let me check with the film itself.

GERALD FRIED was the conductor for the symphony music in the film and he helped Fred with some of the composing. But they gave MR Myrow the main credit.Which we all know is pretty common.

Tough call here, our friends here at FSM say on the cd, Fred Myrow was the composer and Gerald Fried was the conductor for the classical music in the film. Yet I found a few sources that list MR Fried was a co- composer on the film. I guess it's trivia, well of course it is.

I am a famed keyboardist and bandleader. While the bulk of my work is far removed from film music, I did score a few very different genre movies. Who am I?

I scored over 30 films from the early 50's till the late 70's.Of those films, I started with genre films in the early 50's, then did all other types of films till the mid 70's when I closed out my career with a few more genre films. One in the late 70's which a pretty well known horror director made, that has sought of become a cult film. WHO AM I?
