The Grey Fox

Paddy was commissioned to compose the score for the Canadian film ‘The Grey Fox’ by Philip Borsos. The film starred Richard Farnsworth and was the true story of Bill Miner, who after spending 33 years in San Quentin for robbing a stage coach at the end of the 19th century, gets the idea to rob a train when he sees’ The Great Train Robbery’ in the newly invented cinema. Paddy’s wonderful dance rhythms work brilliantly with the shots of old trains moving through the mountains in Canada. The Band won a Canadian ‘Genie’, equivalent of the Oscars, and a Grammy nomination for the score.
