Instrumental Score

Primary Composer(s): Basil Poledouris

The likeable and patriotic score by Basil Poledouris has an almost epic feel to it. His score, especially the opening title sequence, borrows heavily from Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man. Considering the film's subject matter, it's an apt choice. [Thanks to Bob Patterson]Update Us
