This is a little known fact, but George Lucas bought an album called "The Sea Hawk", a recording of Korngold's film music by Charles Gerhardt, and it was this that inspired him to request the same type of score from J. Williams- he even mentioned "The Sea Hawk" in the conversation.

The main title music I have used comes from this same album that was the original inspiration in the first place.

And finally, it's very possible that this was actually the main title theme used in the original TEMP TRACK for Star Wars- notice the similarity to the original Star Wars theme.

lol I love what you can learn on this forum! I went and bought this album immediately after reading your post Trooperman from Ebay for like $10. The track is called "Kings Row" and you're right, is eerily similar to the Star Wars theme. Much of the music is very John William-esque and I wouldn't be surprised if Williams references Korngold as one of his influences.
