I have from time to time posted a link in the chat to a postcard I received from Miklos Rozsa from his summer villa in Italy in 1972. It was in response to a fan letter I sent him which stated that his scores for Ben-Hur and El Cid were among the most influential music of my life. I was astonished to get a reply . . . and the card is worth looking at for its classic appearance and to see Mr. Rozsa's handwriting. I changed the page it was previously on, so if you didn't connect, please go to:

Here is what the card says: "Thank you for your very kind letter Mr. Ormsby. It reached me in Italy where I am spending my summers. I am glad that you like my music. It is always good to know to be appreciated. Maybe it will interest you to know that there is an M.R. Society, and if you want to join it, write to Mr. John Fitzpatrick 2604 Davidson Ave, New York, 10468 Kindest regards, Miklos Rozsa
A soundtrack fan since 1959.
