The Score has talking animals, the Old West and honors Fathers, June 2020

Indiana Jones

Fathers play a big role in many movies, and in the June 20th broadcast host Edmund Stone honors them with several movie scores, including that from Indiana Jones.

6/6        Anthropomorphism  We’ll enjoy an entire program devoted to  talking animals - anthropomorphism in films, from The Jungle Book and Finding Dory to Puss in Boots and Zootopia animals come alive in more ways than one today on The Score.

6/13      The Old West: 21st Century Style  Westerns are one of film’s oldest genres. Today we explore modern takes on the old west with music and moments from A Million Ways to Die in the West, Appaloosa, The Revenant, The Hateful Eight, and remakes of True Grit and The Lone Ranger.

6/20      Father’s Day  We honor Fathers, those men to whom we look up to while we grew up and long after childhood.  You’re invited to settle in for music from movies where Dads play a big role, including Father of the Bride, Finding Nemo, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and a few more.

6/27      Great Speeches Movies feature great orators and moments from literature.  At other times it is ordinary people who provide words with deep meaning or a rallying call that will unite a disparate group or army into action.  Today we’ll stir emotions with moments from The King’s Speech, Henry V, Elizabeth The Golden Age, Gone with the Wind, Independence Day, Braveheart, and a few more.
