Trivia that mentions this person:
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids [1989]
  • Composer James Horner incorporated [?] Raymond Scott's jazz piece, "Powerhouse," into his score without paying royalties or providing attribution. Scott's estate threatened to sue Disney after the movie was released. After prolonged negotiation, Disney paid the estate an undisclosed sum in an out-of-court settlement. While on-screen credits were not changed, cue sheets for the movie do note the use of Scott's piece.
