ClassicCinemathatUsesClassicalMusic Photo Stanley Kubrick's film "2001: A Space Odyssey" is famous for, among other things, its innovative use of classical music. Traditionally, film scores had been composed of music written specifically for the film itself. But in an interview with writer Michel Ciment, Kubrick stated, "However good our best film composers may be, they are not a Beethoven, a Mozart or a Brahms. Why use music which is less good when there is such a multitude of great orchestral music available from the past and from our own time? When you are editing a film, it's very helpful to be able to try out different pieces of music to see how they work with the scene.... Well, with a little more care and thought, these temporary tracks can become the final score."

Well, for my money there's never been music by any classical music composer, let alone any other film composer, that matched the beauty of film composer John Barry's score for "Out of Africa". So take that, Stanley Kubrick. Nevertheless, here's a quiz that celebrates the use of classical music in some classic movies.

Please enjoy, and please don't forget to rate the quiz afterward if you'd like to.
Best wishes,
Bill

Could've picked some more well-known movies. Several of these movies I've never heard of.
