my all-time fave film composer :)

For me it's between Herrmann and Morricone. Maybe Rota is in there somewhere as well.

yeah Morricone was a genius as well! Max Steiner too, if even just on the strength of the score for Kong, but his list of amazing scores is nearly endless.

I never give Steiner enough credit. I'm sure it's just that I take him for granted. I especially love what he did with the last scene in Dark Victory. It demonstrated his talent for simultaneously underscoring and amping up emotion.
