    Jace/Marschallin - (jazz scores) - Ever heard-of the late jazz musician/trumpeter, named Don Ellis? He "did" the scores for French Connection (the original) and French Connection 2.

    At the time the music to Star Wars was thrilling, but I was 12 when it was released. Also Chariots of Fire I really liked at the time, but now not so much. Tastes change over time.
    Edit: "not my favourite...", that being said, I think the genre produces (or has produced - not much being turned out anymore) a greater ratio of truly remarkable films to poor (i.e., great/crap = x) than any other, with comedy churning out the lowest (because it's hard to nail that elusive mix of humour and drama)...this rambling is of course, as Justice Holmes would've said, "mere dicta"!!
