Personal Quote:

I thought I wanted to be a concert pianist, but I didn't like practicing , and that should have been a cue. Then I began doing composing and arranging on Broadway, and I soon realized I had found my vocation.

Trivia:

On the DVD commentary for Young Frankenstein (1974), Mel Brooks says that his two favorite scores from Morris are for that particular film and The Elephant Man (1980). See more »
