Based On The Book

Can you name this tune? Here's a hint: I guess they were never going to use it again...

The score for this film was nominated for the Oscar for best film score, but lost to another movie just as popular. If sheer musical girth had been a factor, the score heard here certainly would have won as it is present under nearly the entire movie, just under four hours of music. Even more amazing, the composer worked on eleven other film scores in this same year.
