Miles Goodman was a composer for film and television. The collection consists mostly of his spotting notes and manuscripts for productions in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as scores for the arrangers and performers.
Miles Goodman was born August 27, 1949 in Los Angeles, CA, and attended Antioch College in Ohio. He began scoring television shows in the 1970s, and in the late 1980s switched to doing mostly feature films, becoming known primarily for his work in comedies. He was a frequent collaborator with director Frank Oz, composing music for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, What About Bob?, and Little Shop of Horrors, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination. A fan of jazz music, Goodman also produced several record albums. He died on August 16, 1996, at his home in Brentwood.
