An American born (Kansas City, Missouri) composer with a name intimating distant climes, Basil Poledouris (1945-) seems a perfect match for work in Hollywood. From Robocop to Hunt for Red October, from an American in Australia with Quigley Down Under to an Aussie in America in Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, from the savagery of Conan the Barbarian to the silliness of Mickey Blue Eyes, Poledouris has covered the cinematic bases. Perhaps his most recognized and finest film work is for the epic western miniseries Lonesome Dove.
