Society honors Schifrin

Ratner, Bain join artist's celebration

Composer Lalo Schifrin was honored with the Film Music Society’s career achievement award Friday night at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Among those on hand to celebrate the Grammy-winning artist’s career in jazz, film and classical music were his “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner, “Mission: Impossible” TV star Barbara Bain and fellow composers Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith and Christopher Young.

Nearly 200 members of the film-music community attended; Frank Capp’s big band played several Schifrin hits, including “Bullitt,” “Cool Hand Luke,” and, of course, “Mission: Impossible” with the composer at the piano.
