- Flicks in Five: White Christmas
It started as a "pop" song by Irving Berlin that Bing Crosby debuted at Christmastime 1941, but didn't get much notice until late in 1943 when servicemen and women requested it to the top of the charts.December 17, 2013
- 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: 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
