I dedicate this topic to a dear friend who has revived my interest in film soundtracks and film music in general. This is arguably her favourite excerpt from her favourite OST to her favourite film:

Here's a mutual favourite, Maurice Jarre's fantastic OST for the peerless Lawrence of Arabia. I saw this film in '63 (?) and bought the OST three years later.

I bumped into this soundtrack album while looking for a song title in a game at Hoffman. Stirring stuff indeed.

And I listened to it again while cooking up a one-person meal of organic potatoes, lettuce and cucumber and decidedly unorganic fish fingers, all laced with a glass or two of something fermented. 

Some great music in there, with an occasional whiff of the Orient but mostly heavily Celtic (at least to these jaundiced ears). Wink

This is from the movie Stormy Weather (1943) with Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers. This is the first and only take of the sequence and considered one of the best dance routines ever. I am truly amazed at how the choreography was pulled off.
