Trivia:

Composed "The Lonely Man Theme" featuring harmonica for the Strand cigarettes ad (1959) directed by Carol Reed. In spite of its artistic quality, it failed dismally as an ad campaign. It featured a man (played by Terence Brook) walking alone at night in London. No-one liked the cigarettes and the brand was withdrawn in 1960.
