Bruce Broughton interview

The multi-talented, Emmy-Award winning film composer Bruce Broughton talks candidly and at length with It's a fascinating interview with someone who has scored dozens of projects and yet doesn't often come to mind as one of today's premiere composers. A fact I think is unfortunate.

My favorite soundtrack by Mr. Broughton? Homeward Bound. :-P The Young Sherlock Holmes series is a great score, too, as is his works for Disney. What can I say? Bruce has great aptitude for those kids' scores, though his only Academy Award nominated effort was for Silverado, which is probably the one he's best known for.

I don't suppose you have a copy of "Young Sherlock Holmes", do you Sam? I'd give an arm (and maybe a leg) to hear that one.

The final two tracks of Homeward Bound have to as ten of the best minutes of movie music composed, ever. No doubt.

Great news about Eloise at the Plaze and Eloise at Christmastime coming out - I absolutely WILL get it! (Little inside reference there for anyone who's seen either.)
