The World's Greatest Music
Find out the fascinating stories behind some of the favourite film scores from the 80s, including classics such as John William's E.T., Ennio Morricone's The Mission and Mozart's Amadeus.
John Williams was nominated for an Academy Award and a Grammy for his score for Born on the Fourth of July. Part of Oliver Stone's 'Vietnam Trilogy' (alongside Platoon and Heaven and Earth), Born on the Fourth of July was co-written by Stone and Ron Kovic, the man whom Tom Cruise plays in the film. Due to the heavy use of popular songs from the 50s and 60s, only around 25 minutes of John Williams music appears in the film, however it's another fine edition to Williams' cannon, with typically lush strings and heroic brass throughout.
