Malcolm Arnold

short little thing.
The wife and I are signed up for Netflix. We don't always order the newer films. When it arrives, we have a movie night in the living room: her away from quilting & I away from this computer machine.

Tonight we watched a 1954 movie called HOBSON'S CHOICE. It was cute & worthless as many movies are - Charles Laughton did a really good job as the father/drunk/etc.

But what got my attention was the music. It was by Malcolm Arnold. If you are a band guy, you know Malcolm Arnold. And this was typical Arnold music. I would watch the movie again to hear some of the songs. Now how old was Arnold in 1954? m
