Show Notes

The piano is truly the companion instrument to cinema. Movie palaces of the silent era included dramatic scores from eighty-eight keys to compliment the story shown on screen. From Chico Marx and Sam in Casablanca to the sounds produced by Oscar Levant, Eddie Duchin, Count Basie and Duke Ellington, the piano is a lush reminder that the collaboration of music composition and cinematography remains elegant and essential.

Meanwhile, broadcaster Joe Lyons toils on another Backlot report, with news and notes that reference Hollywood's past.
