Re: Dominic Frontiere (1931-2017)

A great composer for television and for cinema.

His television themes for The Invaders, The F.B.I. , The Flying Nun, Vega$, the Outer Limits and Matt Houston were classics.

But his movie scores for the John Wayne movies Chisum, The Train Robbers and Brannigan were graet as well.
