Oscar-winning film and Tv composer Ken Thorne has died, aged 90.
The Brit, best known for his score on The Beatles' 1965 comedy Help!, passed away on Tuesday (08Jul14). The cause of his death had not been revealed as Wenn went to press.
Thorne's wife of 42 years, Linda, tells ContraCostaTimes.com, "He was the most unusual man because both men and women adored him. His ego was never shown. He was a brilliant composer, conductor, arranger, but it never affected him at all... and he had the ability to get anybody comfortable with him."
The composer earned an Academy Award for his work on the 1966 musical film A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. He also received an Emmy nomination for the 1995 Tv movie A Season Of Hope.
His other film credits include Superman Ii, Superman IiI, Inspector Clouseau and The Monkees' comedy Head.
