Listen: Spine Tingling Rejected Score For 'The Exorcist,' Plus Watch The Banned Trailer

1 February 2016 12:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist” is still a profoundly terrifying experience forty-three years after its release. It sounds impossible, but it turns out that a minimalistic, chilling unused score written for the film might have made the bloody-cross-masturbating, green-pea-soup-projectile-vomiting experience even scarier than it already was. A piece on Dangerous Minds indicates that before Friedkin settled on primarily using Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” in the film, he tapped a composer whose previous work was not particularly known for sending chills down audience’s collective spines. That composer was Lalo Schifrin, who had previously written scores for “Dirty Harry” and “Cool Hand Luke,” as well as the brain worm theme tune to “Mission: Impossible.” Unfortunately, Friedkin decided not to use Schifrin’s score.

Wayne Rogers, Trapper John on ‘M.A.S.H.,’ Dies at 82

31 December 2015 6:11 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wayne Rogers, best known for playing Captain “Trapper” John McIntyre on TV comedy series “M.A.S.H.,” died Thursday in Los Angeles from complications of pneumonia. He was 82.

He appeared on “M.A.S.H.” for only the first three of 11 seasons, but the army surgeon was one of the most popular characters on the show, known for his repartee with Alan Alda’s Hawkeye Pierce. He was reportedly frustrated by the show’s focus on Alda when he quit after three seasons, with Mike Farrell replacing him as B.J. Hunnicut.

Despite Rogers’ departure from the show, he remained friendly with Alda, who saluted his Rogers in a Twitter message:  “He was smart, funny, curious and dedicated,” Alda wrote. “We made a pact to give Mash all we had and it bonded us.”
