This thread has been drifting like an icy highway, but it's about CLASSICAL MUSIC in movies, like it say in the header.

Okay I must admit that Jazzercise video was pretty funny.  It got me off guard.

My favorite film scene in which classical music was incorporated (ok, it's technically Opera but close enough)-

from LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL:

Sorry I couldn't find a clip of the entire scene. It's very moving.

Yeah.  And how many times have any of us heard THIS in some movie?  ;)

And usually some horror flick, or being listened to by some other kind of evil character(like JAMES WOOD'S Col. Moore in "The General's Daughter"?)

I am a big fan of Air on a G String by Beethoven.  

It is especially good in SEVEN when Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are studying up on the case and Freeman is in the Gothic looking library.

Well, it was composed by Bach not Beethoven. Nice however.

And if the movie WASN'T boring enough, they heavily peppered PLATOON with an orchestra lugubriously sawing it's way through BARBER'S ADAGIO for STRINGS.

And anyone notice how ALFRED NEWMAN'S theme for THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD sounds a lot like Barber's Adagio?  ;)

Man on a Tightrope includes the best-known part of Smetana's The Moldau (Vltava).
