This was one of my favorite TV shows growing up, because I absolutely loved the theme song composed by Lalo Schifrin. Even in his old age, Dirty Harry continues to be one of the most important directors in Hollywood.

During our interview, Navarro, 55, talked about his intrigue with the moving picture, how his home country of Mexico helped develop his professional drive, and whether he thinks audiences today appreciate exactly what a cinematographer contributes to a film.
It was a weekly variety dynamo with Cher at the helm. But it was plagued by problems. The biggest, the network sponsors who were overly concerned of her lack of clothing and her naked bellybutton. Oh my! Not even Barbra Eden in “I Dream Of Jeannie,” had a ‘naked’ bellybutton. If you watch closely, there always something covering Eden. Now, keep in mind, Cher was the original pioneer long before Madonna. She was provocative and honest, but not in a bad way. She relied more on her talent than controversy to push her career along. Before J-Lo, she was wearing barely there stage clothes, which had everyone talking the next day. Long before Demi Moore she was known for dating much younger men, apologizing to no one. Cher has always been Cher.
To this day whenever I hear this song by The Doors I always think of the Vietnam War images from the film “Apocalypse Now.” There is something so evocative and surreal about the song. It’s actually eleven minutes long featuring a spoken interlude by Jim Morrison, the lead singer, who uses words about violence, profanity and an incestuous subject. “The End’s” music has a mystical Indian sound that you’d hear from India. At any rate, the song fits in perfect as the film’s opener and during a violent scene later on in the plot.
The song Fame was musically written by Michael Gore with lyrics from Dean Pitchford. It not only 12 years a slave awards years a slave awards for Best Original song, but a Golden Globe Award for the same thing. Michael Gore has also composed music for such movies as Terms Of Endearment, Pretty In Pink, and The Butcher’s Wife. Dean Pitchford did not merely stick with songwriting for movies, but also went on to write screenplays. He wrote the screenplay for the musical movie Footloose.
Carly Simon may have had a huge hit with her song “You’re So Vain” back in 1972 (through current times), but it was the song “Let The River Run” that won her an Oscar. The song was both written and performed by Simon for the movie Working Girl, which stars Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, and Joan Cusack. Those three named actresses were all also nominated for Oscars for their roles in Working Girl, however, Carly Simon the singer was the only one to take home a statue.
