All that needs to be said of his movie scores is Cinema Paradiso. The greatest movie ever made.

I only need to hear the opening part of the music...


Gah...I've done it again.

If it weren't for the kids being into theatre, I'd probably not know who he was either...

In this time of statues, Jack still greets you when you arrive at Cork Airport - in his second favourite pose

I thought Scientology auditing cured cancer and diseases? Very sad, apart from the Scientology bit, she came across as a decent person.

Yes. Apparently it is supposed to do that in its fairy tales. I lost a good friend to that SF writer Ron Hubbard's cult crap.
