Benny Goodman," he said. "Actually,
my mother rented me one. It came in
a shoebox with tissue paper because
we couldn't afford a case. My mother
played piano, and I played clarinet."

"Film music was my third career. I
had always been composing," Shore
said. "I chose film as a way to have
my compositional ideas recorded.
His more than 50 film scores
include those for Panic Room, Analyze
This, Dogma, That Thing You Do!,
Seven, Ed Wood, M Butterfly, Mrs.
DoubOre, Philadelphia, The Silence of
the Lambs, Big and The Fly.
But the Rings scores, according to
Shore, are different. "The most excit-
ing thing for me is the Tolkien lan-
guages," he said.
For The Fellowship of the Ring,
Shore wrote choir music in five dif-
ferent languages created by Tolkien,

For The Two Towers, Shore added a
sixth language: "Most of the singing
in Rohan and Helm's Deep (locations

Actor Billy Crystal holds up a tzedakah box given to him on behalf of
American Friends of the Hebrew University by Peter Willner, the group's
executive vice president, earlier this month in New York City, prior to a benefit
screening of 'Analyze That." Crystal said a July 13 bombing at the university
motivated the screening. The comedian also supports a theater program
sponsored by the university called "Peace Through the Performing Arts," which
promotes cooperation among Jewish, Palestinian and Israeli Arab students.
`Analyze That," currently playing at area theaters, re-teams Crystal with
Robert De Niro and Lisa Kudrow in a sequel to 1999s 'Analyze This."
