Or Maybe You Do

John Williams: five things you probably don't know about the great film composer

Hat tip to Brent McKee, who reminds us that the list leaves out the fact that Williams appeared in two episodes of JOHNNY STACCATO as an actor.

And a sixth: John Williams's father was Johnny Williams, drummer for the Raymond Scott Quintette (sic) back in the '30s and '40s. Scott was the creator of such classic music--used innumerable times in Warner Bros. cartoons--as "Powerhouse," "The Toy Trumpet," "Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals," and "Reckless Night on Board an Ocean Liner," among others.

Johnny Williams also composed the scores for LOST IN SPACE and THE TIME TUNNEL. But maybe the undefined "you" knew that.
