    Too much effort to read through six screens, so I hope that the brilliantly scripted , perfectly cast, epic drama...

    St Elmo's Fire...

    which prominently features Rob Lowe as a troubled and talented tenor sax player...

    was included.
    1952 The Martin Tenor Silver - RPC 110R
    1928 Buescher TT Soprano (straight) - Selmer Super Session H

    The latest movie to join this list must be "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" - I guess maybe not everyone on this board is familiar with the works of Ian Dury and The Blockheads but they are one of the great British bands of the 70's/80's and this film traces their rise to fame. Although Dury died in 2000, the band plays on.

    Gilad Atzmon shares sax duties these days and plays on the movie soundtrack, as does the actor who plays Ian Dury, Andy Serkis, probably best known as Gollum in Lord of the Rings.

    Al Regni played lead alto on Broadway and also on the original soundtrack album. I haven't heard the film version, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was on that, too.

    I found this movie: Kansas City by Robert Altman

    Along this movie he brought out Jazz '34, but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone have this movie?

    Ok. I went back and read all six pages from the previous years and I couldn't find the 1958 movie "I Want to Live" starring Susan Hayward as Barbrara Graham the convicted murderess who got the death penalty... The soundtrack was a Grammy Award winner for Johnny Mandel, and the entire theme featured the bari sax of Gerry Mulligan. What a classic piece! Also featured were Art Farmer, Bud Shank, Shelly Manne...

    Yup. I was telling a friend about this recently, after years of not thinking about it - funny timing. I have it on VHS, and I don't see it available on DVD yet, which ought to be a crime. I really need to transfer mine to DVD.

    I did the main title music and some transitional cues for a documentary, Hubert Selby Jr: It/ll Be Better Tomorrow, available at most DVD rental services.

    I just saw "Mickey One" last night--the sound track is by Eddie Sauter with improvisations by Stan Getz. The music was fantastic--the story is kind of French New Wave. Warren Beatty was great! Curious if anyone else has seen this film--and for you Stan-heads I think it'd be a requirement!

    "Happy End", an IMO insufferable Audrey Tautou flick features music by Chico Freeman, who plays tenor and soprano saxophone, as well as keyboards and piano. I pretty much stopped paying attention to the movie less than halfway through but the music and sax playing is terrific.
