The third volume of film music information (the first two being Film Music: From Violins to Video and Keeping Score), this compilation of film and television productions and the composers of their musical scores has become the handiest reference source in the film field. The reader and researcher can find the musical score by checking the composer's name, the title of the film, or the year of the film's release. Additions and corrections from the previous editions are included, and all three volumes are the same size and format. The three volumes cover the film and television music field from 1986 to 1988 and include a discography of scores by H. Steven Wright, music librarian at Northern Illinois University.
