/ Music from films you'd forgotten about
Rewatched Kill Bill and had forgotten about this absolute gem;
Spaghetti westerns next on the list.
Those words always make me think of The Orb before Flash Gordon, which is weird because I have watched it loads of times
The track 'the ecstacy of gold' from the good, the bad & the ugly is ace.
THE THIRD MAN - I like the sound track (and the movie too)
The City of Prague Philharmonic's 6 CD set of film themes is fantastic listening, spanning nearly 70 years from 1939 to 2006. My own favorite, is also one of the shortest : the 20th Century Fox Fanfare with Cinescope Extension. Perhaps one , if not the most recognized piece of film music in the World.
As if you had forgotten or needed reminding
Not really a forgotten film, but I just rewatched Das Boot and the soundtrack is just amazing:
'Das Boot' was shown on ARTE Sunday evening. A great watch !
I'm not being pedantic here, but is it the music or the films that are forgotten?

I am as bewildered! The Third Man? One of the all time classics and probably better remembered for its music than anything else!

... and being used on an aftershave advert last night!
Love the Spaghetti Western music - I had them on vinyl as a kid.
Yes that is where I watched it, too, and was reminded of how good the music is!
Check out Zabriski Point, possibly the best sound track for a crap film ever

The Grateful dead and Pink Floyd IIRC. The only thing I remember (badly) about the movie apart from the soundtrack was the house exploding at the end (or did I just make that up?)
Lake District-based runner Kim Collison has set a new speed record on the Bob Graham Round in winter. Kim completed the round in just 15 hours 47 minutes, knocking a big chunk from the previous fastest winter time of 18:18 set by Jim Mann in 2013.
