The Adventures of Robin Hood: The Adventures of Errol Flynn

Robin Hood

Many of our listeners love movie soundtracks.   I am often asked what my favorite soundtrack is and frankly, I’d be hard pressed to name just one.  One of my favorite actors from the past was Errol Flynn.  No one could play a pirate or Robin Hood as good as Flynn. Although he aspired to play serious, challenging dramatic roles, in ... Read More »

A Summer Place: A Moment In Time

A Summer Place

One of the most beautiful music soundtracks is from A Summer Place, 1959.  It starred heart-throb, Troy Donahue and beautiful teen idol, Sandra Dee.  The music composed by Max Steiner became famous and Percy Faith’s rendition became a number one hit. I recently saw this movie on television.  Although the story is somewhat dated, the performances, scenery and passion are ... Read More »

I have the song, “Night and Day”, performed by no less than 24 musicians. I ... Read More »

I dance with a paint brush ... Read More »

The movie starred the incredible Gene Kelly and the beautiful Cyd Charisse. This musical made you want to believe in the impossible. The music “Heather on the ... Read More »

Where Are You, Atlantis?

Lost Horizon

I think I’m a sucker for lost continents, lost treasures and mystical realms. I love the song “Lost Horizon” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Although the movie did not fare well, I loved it and I particularly loved the title song. So Burt, you made one fan very happy, and I’m sure many more! Read More »

The Legend of Legend

Legend Soundtrack

Did you know that the movie Legend has two soundtracks? One was created by genius Jerry Goldsmith (as well as the Sand Pebbles, Chinatown, and The Wind and the Lion). But another soundtrack was created by a group called Tangerine Dream composed of Yes members John Anderson and Bryan Ferry. So, now there are two versions of the soundtrack and ... Read More »
