EARLE HAGEN




The rich trove of screen music from the pen of Earle Hagen ranges from orchestration and composition for great 20th Century Fox films (including a cluster of blockbuster musicals)to some of television's most beloved themes and the scoring of some 4000 hours of music to augment the comedy and drama series they headlined.

While his theme for “The Andy Griffith Show” may be the best known, we give special attention here to Earle Hagen's tour de force scores for the 1965-1968 Sheldon Leonard dramatic show “I Spy.”
