. . . They've also added a new bit to that page, restoring Fred Steiner's rejected cue for the "mechanical rice-picker" scene (which was replaced by a piece of library music by Joseph Mullendore in the final episode). It's interesting, but I can see why the Steiner cue was rejected; it was a bit too busy and intense and kind of stepped on the scene . . .
Agreed, the Steiner music cue for the clothes-stealing sequence is just too much -- it overpowers the scene. Just shows that even talented composers don't always know what music works best.
