One of the great regrets of my Hollywood career is that I never got to work with Billy Goldenberg, one of my favorite composers for film and television. He wrote the sweet, lyrical score for the TV movie SILENT NIGHT LONELY NIGHT, as well as music for, among many other series and films, NIGHT GALLERY, QUEEN OF THE STARDUST BALLROOM, RED SKY AT MORNING, DUEL, and THE NAME OF THE GAME (one episode, “All the Old Familiar Faces,” featured a modern-day Greek chorus, and another, the powerful science fiction parable “L.A. 2017,” was greatly enhanced by Goldenberg’s eerie, futuristic theme). My friend Gary Gerani is working on a documentary about his often underappreciated career (and I say “underappreciated” because even Imdb.com doesn’t have a complete list of his voluminous credits). R.I.P. to a master of his craft.

I am devastated! I just got the news that my dear lifelong friend Billy Goldenberg just passed away! Billy and I became close friends immediately when I directed “Hullabaloo” for NBC’s “Hullabaloo” in 1965. We continued our close friendship ever since. Sharon and I went to see Billy in Palm Springs right before the pandemic hit to see his and his collaboration with Alan and Marilyn Bregman’s wonderful musical “Ballroom” and he was so excited about their musical returning to Broadway! Billy was the sweetest, most talented and creative talent that I ever had the privilege to know and collaborate with in my career! Billy was responsible for the amazing comeback of Elvis and without his arrangements and score on the 1968 NBC Elvis Special, Elvis’ career might have ended right there’and then! I’m still in shock and will miss him dearly for the rest of my life!

Such sad news! Billy was my neighbor in NYC for many years & we stayed close friends. I first met him standing distraught in the hallway when he‘d accidentally set off his smoke alarm while grilling salmon & didn’t know how to turn it off! I showed him how. #BillyGoldenberg
