Dances with Wolves (includes John Dunbar Theme)
Barry's first entry in the Hall of Fame this year, and this film score reaches its highest-ever position
Kevin Costner directed and starred in this 1990 Western, hoovering up seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. British film composer John Barry's sweeping string sounds suited the epic nature of the story's Sioux-soaked skylines perfectly. As well as the main John Dunbar Theme, the Love Theme is eloquent and haunting; while the music used to accompany Two Socks (the 'star' wolf) is both shifting and beautiful. Dances With Wolves earned Barry his fifth Academy Award.
