Gerald Fried, Composer of Miracles

In my view, Gerald Fried is a genius of TV composion.  He produced great scores for Star Trek and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., as well as many other "low-budget" films and other TV shows.  His score for The Return of Dracula is the best part of that film, as he wrenches around the "Dies Irae" theme to make the orchestra wail and moan.

Here is an article on Fried from Starlog #169, August 1991.
