- Cabby is the first film that Eric was given full
credit for the music, although he had been helping Bruce Montgomery for a
while. Peter Rogers dispensed with Montgomery's services and employed
Eric Rogers and he went on to work on a further 23 films, and formed a
close personal and professional relationship with Peter.
- Rogers transcripted all the music for Lionel Bart's
Oliver. Bart was unable to read or write music and so employed
Rogers to do the job. Bart sung while he wrote them down. Years
later Jim Dale took on the role of Fagin in a revival of the musical in the
West End and Broadway.
- His brother Alan Rogers wrote the saloon song
in Cowboy, This Is The Time For Love and if you look closely you can
see Alan playing the piano in the saloon.
- Peter Rogers wanted to cut back on the budget of
England, and so only wanted to use a 20 piece orchestra for the music which
normally took 40 pieces. Eric Rogers was having none of this and refused to
do it, and so Max Harris was brought in from TV's Porridge.
