Trivia for the other 98% of us


Recommended Posts

Erich Wolfgang Korngold had written the scores for a number of important movies for Warners, including The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939). Korngold was told he was to write a score for a new picture. According to Brendan Carroll in his biography of Korngold, the composer, thinking this was another royal story, set about writing the celebrated fanfare theme of the picture. Despite the wrong assumption, Korngold decided to keep and develop the theme into what has become a classic score.

 

-name the 'new picture'?

Well, it's a clever hint and it makes me think of KING'S ROW   since it's a famous film of Ronald Reagan's so it was probably used at his Presidential Inauguration ??

 

Good thinking, lavender. That's the one :)
