Book Excerpt of the Day

“After watching a five-hour rough cut of [The Thomas Crown Affair], Michel Legrand took a six-week vacation during which he wrote 90 minutes of music that the film – in turn – was edited around (very unconventional to say the least). If Legrand’s experiment had failed he would have been obligated to write a second score for free.”

– from Chapter 1: Crime Jazz & Felonious Funk of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
