Posted on · THANKS BUT NO THANKS!...This weekend on Music from the Movies, we'll explore two film scores by highly acclaimed composers that were rejected for final use.  Alex North composed a stunning score to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, but it never made into the film.  John Barry composed a beautiful score for The Golden Child, that made it into the film, but was soon cast aside.  Find out why these scores were rejected and judge them for yourself this Saturday at 8pm on Classical 91.7FM. > visit the MFTM page
