Comments by Robert D. Mahan:
“Monsters, Beauties and Heroes” featured a screen with various movie villains, beauties and heroes with arrangements of various pieces of music. Jaws and Superman themes were all too briefly played here, among others.
The Opening Chase from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade segment featured Mr. Williams showing us the clip from the film first without music, hilariously describing the aspects of scoring a piece of film and then, of course, the same clip was played with the music.
The concert was excellent, in my opinion.
