What about Marius Constant? I'm sure everyone here, perhaps every
science fiction fan in the English-speaking world, knows his music.
Would someone please enlighten me with regard to this person?
He composed the original _Twilight Zone_ theme music.
(This sort of thing is why God has given us Google and Wikipedia.)
Since I never saw that...I wouldn't recognize it. I wouldn't
recognize the music from "Science Fiction Theater" at this
late date, either, but I did see some episodes of that....
"The Twilight Zone" is world-famous, a perennial, an icon of American TV in
the 1960s. Its episodes have been shown endlessly in reruns and syndication
for 40+ years. Its best episodes have been discussed by fans and mundanes
alike, had their dialogue memorized, and influenced entertainers, filmmakers,
actors, directors, writers, and the general public.
That may be, but Hal and I never saw it. (I didn't own a
television while it was on; I don't know what Hal's reason is.)
"Science Fiction Theater," on the other hand, is obscure, practically unknown
to anybody younger than 50, and almost entirely forgettable. (It happens
that I *do* recall the theme music, but let that pass.) I watched regularly
every week and I did not even recall the name of the pompous announcer/host.
I don't either, but I do remember some of the episodes. The baby
mammoth, for instance.
