    Okay, I noticed this years ago but had forgotten about it until it was mentioned in DVDFile's review of the just-released The Talk of the Town dvd...

    Yoda's theme, written by John Williams for the Star Wars films, bears a striking resemblance to parts of the score from TTOTT, written by Frederick Hollander.

    So what's up with that? Since there are similarities between the characters of Yoda and Michael Lightcap, could it be an homage? Or is it a bit of unconscious cribbing by Williams? Or sheer coincidence?
