However, I would be more inclined to believe that the wonderful use of silhouette on Duke and his facial profile was Bill Clothier's contribution.

In a way, Williams is the modern day Tiomkin. Both are very old-school and classical in their approach to film scores. Either way, I love both of them. They can be grand when they need to be, haunting when they need to be and emotional when they need to be. Sometimes they can combine all three.
