Re: The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Cut Mark 4

Not sure if this has been mentioned before (if so, I beg your pardon), but while listening to Khachaturian's Gayaneh last night, I found that the Dance of the Mountaineers (heard during the War Machine sequence) was not the only piece from the ballet quoted in the workprint. Not even 10 minutes in, ...

Hopefully, it won't be like their recent release of Guaraldi's score for It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (which was derived from a music-and-effects track) From Amazon's About Info...

Re: Movie Thread: The Dissection Room

Can't say I'm overly enthusiastic about this new movie, but that poster is a nice throwback to the ones Bob Peak created for 60's musicals (chiefly My Fair Lady and Camelot).
