There haven't been many pre-2005 Best Picture winners that didn't feature a memorable, if not instantly iconic, score... so it was pretty tough to narrow it down to 35 choices. Let's hope you're favorite one isn't missing.

Which of these classic scores from Best Picture winners is your favorite?

Gandhi is on the list twice. 

'Tough choice but probably Schindler's List or Lawrence of Arabia. What a list!

Perhaps 'From Here to Eternity' (Morris Stoloff , George Duning) or 'Casablanca?

I just won the Triple Crown of first votes!  Three straight first votes.  I just might retire and move to London to live the extravagant life with the $ millions won from such an impressive feat.

Now I can't stop thinking about how situation depicted here with smileyes could have looked in real life. Five anxious violinists accompanied by two enthusiastic male cheerleaders.

Nikolay,

I agree the juxtaposition of the five anxious violinists and cheerleaders is a tad strange. The anxious violinists communicated that this is a music related poll. However, by themselves, they seemed rather grim. I added the cheerleaders to cheer up the congratulations.
