"Our Mother's House" marked the second of five collaborations between director Jack Clayton and noted French soundtrack composer Georges Delerue, who had previously written the score for Clayton's "The Pumpkin Eater" (1964). After an interval of 16 years, they reunited for "Something Wicked This Way Comes" (1983), although the production was troubled, with Disney forcing Clayton to replace Delerue's original music (which was considered 'too dark') with a new score by James Horner. Delerue went on to compose the music for Clayton's last two projects, "The Longly Passion of Judith Hearne" (1987),and the TV movie "Memento Mori" (1992), which was broadcast a month after Delerue's death.
