FILM CLASSICS | 6pm, Sunday 6/5 with Jack Goggin
There have been quite a few battle scenes in movies over the years—some based on real battles, and many entirely imaginary–and while most of them that have music have to deal with a lot of noise and sound effects—sometimes the score shines through. No small skirmishes tonight—just BIG BATTLES. There are a lot of possibilities-but don’t be surprised if there’s a battle on a frozen lake between some medieval Russians and Germans!
KICKSTART YOUR SUMMER
