- Flicks in Five: 'Scrooge'
The 1970 musical by Leslie Bricusse is a beautifully filmed version of the classic "A Christmas Carol" with Albert Finney, Alec Guiness and an all-star British cast.December 10, 2013
- Flicks in Five: Home Alone
John Williams provides a sentimental and lovely score to accompany the screwball comedy about a kid left alone at home at Christmastime.December 3, 2013
- Flicks in Five: The Lion in Winter
Movie scores provide a huge portion of the story telling. John Barry wrote a choral score for The Lion in Winter that sets the stage for intrigue and the appropriate Plantagenet style backstabbing.October 29, 2013
- Flicks in Five: Monsters, Inc.
Our celebration of Pixar films continues this week as we look at Monsters, Inc., another Randy Newman-composed score.October 22, 2013
- Flicks in Five: Casablanca
So many Hollywood romances, so little time. But for sheer passion and a tale of (nearly) unrequited love, at least by movie's end, you can't beat Rick and Ilse in "Casablanca." Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman sizzled as the two star-crossed lovers trying to survive in war-torn North Africa. Sam plays again on Flicks in Five.October 8, 2013
