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.
    Titanic [1997]
  • James Cameron was adamant about not including any song in the film, even over the closing credits. Composer James Horner secretly arranged with lyricist [?] Will Jennings and singer CÚline Dion to write "My Heart Will Go On" and record a demo tape which he then presented to Cameron, who responded very favorably and included the song over the closing credits. The song went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
