Maurice Jarre: 1924 - 2009

Maurice Jarre, Academy Award winning composers of such renowned scores as Lawrence of Arabia, Dr. Zhivago, and A Passage to India, passed away today at the age of 84.

His other screen credits include Fatal Attraction, Ghost, Sunshine, Dead Poet's Society, Jesus of Nazareth, and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Although he is probably best known for the famous "Lara's Theme" from Dr. Zhivago.

He was one of Hollywood's most accomplished composers
, and his great talent will be sorely missed.
