Reading Andre Previn's book you get the impression that after he left Hollywood and became more heavily involved with Classical Music, which in turn led him to becoming the leader of the London Symphony, his film years became something of an embarrassment to him and is something he sadly disassociates himself with. Shame, because all of his excellent film work will be most fondly cherished and remembered long after his classical career is over.(not even sure if he is still active) Certainly money-wise he should at least thank Hollywood for financing his later chosen lifestyle. Sad. Maybe the lyrics to his song sums it up best."Can it be, I like myself....." Doug.
