Other film credits in a busy career included To Trap a Spy (1964), The Maltese Bippy (1969), A Walk in the Spring Rain (1969), Company of Killers (1970), The Day of the Dolphin (1973), Marathon Man (1976), Demon Seed (1977), Black Friday (1977), The Big Fix (1978), Nightkill (1980), Creepshow (1982), Power (1985), Spring Awakening (1994), The Thomas Crown Affair (1999), We'll Never Have Paris (2014) and The Congressman (2016), his last.
