Fire mares can be found in the movie Krull, but written on the back of this panel is the name “Elora Danan“. Yost’s taste in classical music was anything but highbrow. His favorite symphonies were the 5th, 6th and 9th by Beethoven, and he loathed string quartets and Philip Glass. What he liked best were movie soundtracks, especially anything by James Horner. From Battle Beyond the Stars to The Mask of Zorro, his collection of James Horner soundtracks from the 80’s and 90’s was nearly complete, missing only Humanoids from the Deep, The Pelican Brief and Bicentennial Man. The collection was all on vinyl. Many of the movies he had seen only once, or not at all. Yost’s favorite soundtrack was from the movie Willow, a movie he identified as a guilty pleasure. He said on more than one occasion that if GLP was a movie, it would have a James Horner soundtrack that sounded a lot like Willow.
