They should have made a series:   Feud: Jerry and John

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt5985672/ Synopsis: After the Second World War, budding film composer Jerry Herst moves to Hollywood to study with infamous master teacher Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

Thanks for watching this film, Thor, so we don't have to!

:o

 

I assume this is a biopic of Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

Also, I didn't know there was a composer named Jerry herst. I thought he was an imaginative character.

it's very funny. Just a couple of days ago i was thinking about Tedesco and I was curious to listen to what film music he wrote.

I watched some main titles from some films he had scored in youtube.

 

Also,I wonder if they took williams' permission to depict him in the film.

Olivia De Havilland just recently sued over her portrayal in that Feud series.

I'm sure there shouldn't be anything negative with the portrayal of his character but still..

 

Another thing I wonder is, how can a film about a film composer keep the interest of the viewer, unless there is a personal turmoil, or conflicts etc.

I'm guessing it will be a very minor role.

I don't know how many of you know already, but a biopic on Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (the Italian emigrée who taught composition to John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith among many others) has just been released in the US. Here's a trailer:

 

 

According to the IMDb credits list, there are actors portraying Williams, Goldsmith, Andrè Previn, Henry Mancini, Stanley Kubrick and Igor Stravinskij :)

Xander Berkley's character wasn't a villain, he was the head of CTU who sacrifices his life to save Jack's

 

Yeah, that's right! 

 

At one point I think we were led to believe he's a mole or a villain, but he turned out to be one of the good guys!
