Eddie Manson

Many thanks again to Isbum !


Charming score! Enjoy :)

Eddie Lawrence Manson began scoring dramas in the days of live television, and composed for such shows as Armstrong Circle Theater, Kraft Theater, Westinghouse Theater, Studio One, and Lamp Unto My Feet. At the same time, he wrote and performed his famous harmonica score to the now-classic Morris Engel/Ruth Orkin film, The Little Fugitive.

In television Mr. Manson was nominated for two Emmy awards for scores for Harvey (a Dupont Show of the Month) and for the critically-acclaimed documentary, The River Nile. He also wrote scores for numerous movies of the week, including Crash: The True Story of Flight 401, the Ace award-winning Tiger Town, and in recent years, for two MOW's on which he worked with his son, producer/director David Manson -- A Love Affair: The Eleanor and Lou Gehrig Story, and Eye on the Sparrow. In addition, he composed for such series as Ben Casey, Slattery's People, The Virginian and others.

Other theatrical releases for which Mr. Manson composed scores include the Engel/Orkin film Weddings and Babies and Lovers and Lollipops, as well as Three Bites of the Apple (MGM) and the Academy Award- winning short, Day of the Painter.
