Paul Dunlap (1919-2010) was an American film music composer.
William Paul Dunlap was born on July 19, 1919 in Springfield, Ohio to William P. and Janice P. Dunlap. By 1930 Dunlap had moved west as his mother had remarried William H. Brock of Los Angeles, California. He studied music composition with Arnold Schoenberg, Ernst Toch, and Nadia Boulanger, and eventually found work as a film composer himself. He eventually wrote the scores for 133 films, mostly in the 1950s and 1960s. He also composed a piano concerto, choral work, and an opera. Dunlap died on March 11, 2010 in Palm Springs, California.
