A French musicians guild says Oscar-winning film composer Maurice Jarre has died at the age of 84.
Jarre is best known for writing the haunting song "Lara's Theme" from the film "Doctor Zhivago."
SACEM head Bernard Miyet cites Jarre's family Monday as saying the composer died in his California villa.
Jarre penned dozens of scores for some of Hollywood's most prominent directors.
