    Can anyone ID this Alfred Hitchcock film music?

    I'd love to know the title of the music accompanying a version of Alfred Hitchcock's silent film The Lodger (1926). It's a well-edited needle-drop of a pre-existing recording on the "Vintage Films" sound reissue (c. 1930–1950), which now appears on many bootlegs. There are a couple of...

    Recommendations on Projector and screen for a film series in art gallery.

    I have a friend who is looking to install a large screen (140 or 150 diagonal) and projector in a professional art gallery.

    Music - "The Stunt Man" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"

    I just watched the blu ray release of "The Stunt Man" (1980). Is it just me or is the score for that film EXTREMELY similar to the score for "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" (1988) ? I'd be curious to hear opinions from others. Thanks.

    Anybody going to Watch Ken Burn's Country Music?

    I lived in Nashville for five years back in the 1970s. I wasn't a fan of country music back then and it's barely tolerable to me now.

    Remember the 2008 Universal fire? What MUSIC was lost?

    I think many here remember the 2008 Universal "vault" fire that destroyed many films and videotapes, but apparently, a lot of music masters were also lost as well. What is most disturbing, is that UMG still doesn't seem to have a precise grasp on what was lost, or at least they're not saying, if...

    Overtures, intermission, entr'acte, exit music on Blu-ray

    There was a thread on this subject in 2011. But rather than bump that thread, I thought it best to post a new one since 7 years have passed and that thread has been dormant since 2011. There is a much older thread (2005) on the subject of DVDs that contain overtures, intermission, entr'acte and...

    Apple Music keeps improving, but will its video catch YouTube?

    One of the reasons I chose Apple Music over Spotify is Apple Music’s support for music videos. Indeed the music video selection, especially for older ones has been continually improving, heading towards a lot of stuff from the dawn of the MTV era (“I want my MTV!” - early 1980s) For instance...
