Robert Cobert (26 October 1924-) is a composer who has written extensively for television and movies. He is best known for his Emmy-nominated work for the TV mini-series The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. Together, the film score for these two movies constitute the longest film score ever written for a movie. Cobert is also known for his early work as the composer for the cult soap opera Dark Shadows.
Aside from his most notable work, Cobert also composed many game show themes with most being associated with shows produced by Goodson-Todman Productions and Bob Stewart Productions. His most notable themes in that genre include the original themes for To Tell The Truth (2nd theme), Password (2nd theme), Blockbusters, The $25,000 Pyramid (1982 update) and Chain Reaction (itself a remake of the theme from Supertrain).
