One U.N.C.L.E. composer wishes another happy birthday

Composer Lalo Schifrin celebrates his 83rd birthday today. One up-and-coming composer, Daniel Pemberton, took to Twitter to send a birthday greeting:

Schifrin is best known for composing the theme for Mission: Impossible as well as scores for such movies as Bullitt.

However, he also composed scores for two episodes of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and his arrangment of Jerry Goldsmith’s U.N.C.L.E. theme was used for that show’s second season (1965-66). Pemberton — born in 1978, a decade after the series went off the air — composed the score for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie that’s coming out in mid-August.

Separately, Amazon.com has started taking pre-orders FOR THE U.N.C.L.E. MOVIE SOUNDTRACK, to be released on Aug. 7. It’s listed as “various artists.” However, Pemberton sent A TWEET EARLIER THIS MONTH that he was involved with production of the soundtrack album.
