WIN John Williams Soundtracks Compilation Two Disc CD

john williams competition

Any John Williams fan will tell you that one of the hardest questions they can be asked is "which one piece from John Williams is your absolute favourite?"  It's such a difficult question to answer, mainly because of course the maestro has written so many wonderful and memorable masterpieces.

However if we tweak the question slightly and ask "name one of your favourite pieces from John Williams?" then that's not so bad as its not asking for your all time favourite and that's exactly what we're going to ask you here on The Bearded Trio.  We want to know some of your favourite John Williams tracks.

The best answer will win a copy of the two CD "John Williams Soundtracks" performed by the The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.  The two disc compilation features some of John Williams' classics such as E.T.

  1. Cadillac of the Skies from Empire of the Sun.

  2. Such a hard choice, I've grown up listening to these scores! A personal fave of mine though is Bugs and Secret Tunnels from the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom score. It's such a visual treat! How JW can convey billions of writhing bugs and caving ceilings using music is just magic. Never fails to get my heart racing and tongue quoting!!

  3. Oh wow - so many good ones. I'll pick The City in the Clouds today. ESB is my favourite picture, and this track has it all. Pathos, wonder, excitement - starts with Luke and Yoda on Dagobah, then swells into Leia's theme. There's menace and danger and beauty - and Boba Fett.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
