German-born composer Hans Zimmer's emergence from scoring European and the occasional independent American film out of a London studio in the 1980s happened via Barry Levinson's 1988 film, RAIN MAN. The story goes that Levinson and his wife, Diana were in London promoting his film GOOD MORNING VIETNAM. While there, Diana had gone to see the 1988 film A WORLD APART, an anti-apartheid drama directed by Chris Menges, which Zimmer had scored. She was especially taken by the music, so she bought a copy of the CD and gave it to Barry, who was likewise impressed – so much so that he began to use parts of that score as temporary music during post production on his new film, RAIN MAN.
