Connections between "Falcon Crest" and Other Productions
Some composers reused parts of the music score that they specifically composed for "Falcon Crest" in other productions.
The background music for the scene in "Retribution" (# 087 <4.19>; original U.S. airdate: 02/08/1985, CBS) when Angela arrived at Riebmann's was composed by PETER MYERS.
The same score was reused by him in "True Confessions" (# 194 <8.11>; original U.S. airdate: 02/03/1989, CBS) in the scene when Nick discovered the car of Cellini's henchmen near the Agretti Residence.
PETER MYERS also composed the score for the season 5 cliffhanger of "Dynasty" entitled "Royal Wedding" (# 115 <5.29>; original U.S. airdate: 05/15/1985) and reused this piece there, too.
- "Miracle Landing":
In many scenes involving Nicole Sauguet in # 156 <7.01> through # 158 <7.03> of "Falcon Crest", MARK SNOW used "Nicole Sauguet's Theme", a score he specifically composed as a character theme in 1987.
MARK SNOW reused that score with minor modifications in the CBS TV movie "Miracle Landing" (original U.S. airdate: 02/11/1990, CBS; written by GARNER SIMMONS) in a scene with ANA-ALICIA, who played a flight attendant there. The score plays at approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes.
