Who Conducts? part II

So the question continues....who conducts a film score?  At the scoring session, the composer can either conduct themselves, or have a separate conductor.  See here for the post about composers as conductors.  This post is all about conductors who are not the composers.  

Since many music directors or conductors are uncredited in older films, I have featured more modern films.  Just like orchestrators, many composers collaborate with the same conductor over and over.  Many of these conductors are also orchestrators.  Some of these conductors have even gone on to compose.

There also may be multiple conductors for one film, often others getting uncredited.  Repeating composer collaborators are noted in green
