    Obviously 10 and Bolero, both starring Bo-lero Derek, had the tune.
    A friend of mine is going nuts trying to figure out another movie it's in. My response to him was "Dude...it's been in a LOT of movies!"
    When he challenged me to name some, I drew a blank.
    So I thought I'd ask you guys, the cultured and articulate movie animals of the HTF.
    Thanks.

    Hi Scott,
    Just enjoying a Saturday morning -- and for some reason got on a Ravel's Bolero thing. So, this nearly 83 yr old was reminiscing and having been mad about Tyrone Power (back in the day) the only likely movie that came to my mind was CAPTAIN FROM CASTILLE. What a shock to me that no one even mentioned it.
    Long before "10" and Bo Derek! I see this is a 2002 discussion (?) but thought I would throw it in because it was a super Hollywood film of its time. Just saying'.

    There is an excellent French movie (imho) called Bolero- the dance of life that I highly recommend. It is a multi generational saga directed by Claude La Louch.
    Well worth seeking out

    If interested in Japanese animation, a version appears in Digimon Adventure; in both the TV series and the OVA.

    Edit: The english dub has different sountrack.

    That was one oddball selection of music for a Digimon anise.

    No ,I was not. Bolero was a separate sequence.Also I do not recall seeing any Arabian dance sequence from the Nutcracker in FANTASIA. Aren't you thinking of the 'dance of the sugar plum fairies' from the Nutcracker and which was performed by animated elephants?

    Bollero was in Allegro non Troppo, not Fantasia.

    Also...there are no elephants in the original Fantasia. Those were hippos doing the Dance Of The Hours.

    Okay guys, let's get the movie trivia correct. Bolero was NOT in Fantasia. Dance of the Hours is and it has hippos, ostriches, crocodiles AND elephants. The Arabian Dance IS in Fantasia. It is a sequence with fish under the water.
