10 is one of my favourite films.
Bit of a nugget.

The aftermath of his dentistry work is very good comedy.

I liked Goodwin's Luftwaffe March, done exactly how the Germans would have done it

Re: Greatest film scores

Was that not the one where Walton wrote the whole score and when he turned up for the premiere found that almost all of it was taken out except the bit accompanying a dog fight?

Re: Greatest film scores
Battle of Britain with the William Walton sound track although Ron Goodwin sound track is good as well:

Finale by William Walton, proper stirring stuff

Close encounters of the Third Kind

Robinson Crusoe - black & White French TV show from the 60's - proper ear worm!
