The Score in January 2020 includes a look at the films of 'A' List actor Jack Nicholson

Jack Nicholson, A-lister

Known for her versatile character portrayals, Jack Nicholson is one of the most prominent American motion-picture actors of his generation. This month host Edmund Stone shares music from this 'A' list star's films (1/25).

1/4       Seen and Heard in 2019  Host Edmund Stone reflects on some of the best films of the past year, with music and moments from Captain Marvel, John Wick 3 - Parabellum, Aladdin, Avengers Endgame, Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Frozen 2, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

1/11      Totally Quotable Some movies are known and loved for their quips and quotes – so much so that many are still part of our lexicon, years and decades after the film came out. We'll enjoy moments and music from cult favorites, iconic classics and wonderful one-liners.  From the fun to the inspirational expect: Princess Bride, Airplane, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Pirates of the Caribbean, Casablanca, Forest Gump, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Spider-Man, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings, and many more. 

1/18      Best Laid Plans We enter the movie world of failed get rich quick schemes and inept criminals with music and moments from Trading Places, Oceans 11, The Lady Killers, American Hustle, The Sting, Palookaville, Fargo, A Fish Called Wanda, and Welcome to Collinwood

1/25      Jack Nicholson (Hollywood's 'A' List)  We celebrate the career of an American movie icon.  Jack Nicholson burst on the scene with Easy Rider, Chinatown and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.  He played a crazed Joker in Batman, a neurotic writer in As Good as it Gets, and a mob boss in The Departed.  He's always convincing and he's our 'A' List actor on this edition of The Score.
