Dave Miller commented on Stephen Butler's group Classic Movie Composers
"Thank you for the kind words, Mad. I think there is room at GAOH for both groups, and I will be sure to give credit to this group whenever possible. This could be interesting since I don't think there is a true crossover of groups here."

Al Pearce replied to Stephen Butler's discussion John Williams in the group Classic Movie Composers
"I don't disagree at all! His style is very reminiscent of Korngold, especially his score for STAR WARS filled with the types of cues and fanfares that Korngold would've composed. Williams is truly ond of the best film composers ever, and…"

Kenneth Lawson replied to Stephen Butler's discussion John Williams in the group Classic Movie Composers
"I  think John Williams work is as important as any other composer. The only difference being his work is relatively more recent,ie;1980's until now and beyond. He is in many way the heir to the Late…"

John Williams

Although Williams' career falls outside of the Golden Age of Hollywood time period, I think he is an appropriate addition to the discussion group, because his output is stylistically more in keeping with that influence.  Perhaps others disagree?  Discuss.See More
