Trivia:

The producers of "Bridge on the River Kwai" wanted to release the movie in time to make the deadline for Academy Award consideration. However, they couldn't find any composers willing to write a score on such a tight deadline. Arnold accepted the challenge. They gave him 10 days to compose the complete film score; he did it, and won the Oscar for best score. See more »
