Newsworks Essay: Movie Magic is Nothing Without the Music

Newsworks (Online zine of WHYY) has just posted my essay about music & the movies. Go to and look for the title on their home page. Please leave a comment if you are so inclined. This is the photo they used from Jaws because I used that as an example of how the music influenced the movie, thanks to my son-by-marriage, Jay. (The photo is a detail from the “Jaws” movie poster c. 1975 that Newsworks used as the photo to introduce my essay.)What would 'Jaws' be without John WIlliams' stirring score? (Detail from 'Jaws' movie poster c. 1975)
