Falcon Crest (drama, starring Jane Wyman)

     (CBS Primetime, 1981 - 1990)

     [this series was designed to hold the network audience following
      the hit series "Dallas", but it turned out to have its own "legs"
      since it lasted on Primetime television for nine seasons; it
      was also unusual for the fact it reflected a matriarchy -- the
      character played by Jane Wyman was the head of a winery; the 
      large family and circle of friends included an ever-changing 
      spectrum of characters; some of the veteran actors who flowed 
      in and out of the drama included:

      Robert Foxworth, Lorenzo Lamas, John Saxon, Mel Ferrer, Roy 
      Thinnes, Cliff Robertson, Gina Lollobrigida, Cesar Romero, 
      Edward Albert, Kim Novak, Robert Stack, Rod Taylor, Michael 
      Fox and Gregory Harrison]

Theme: "Falcon Crest (M & E Title)(Op & Cl Theme)"

    [ASCAP title variations...

     Bill Conti also wrote the THEME for the series which preceded

     Theme in 1981, as well as several motion picture THEMEs including 
     the hit THEME for "Rocky"]
