This chapter details Mancini's career in the late 1980s. The 1980s was another transitional period in the whole field of film scoring. The intrepid John Williams still ruled with one prestigious assignment after another, prodded by but not dependent on his associations with directors Spielberg and Lucas. Other veterans enjoyed renewed success during these years: John Barry's Oscar win for Dances with Wolves and Dave Grusin's scores for The Fabulous Baker Boys and The Firm. The new breed was beginning to take over, though; James Horner wrote blandly but appropriately for Field of Dreams, Hans Zimmer similarly for Rain Man. Meanwhile, Mancini was scoring three limited-release films: Physical Evidence, Fear, and Welcome Home.
