Huey, Judy and Jimmy

This week in The Wall Street Journal, my "Anatomy of a Song" column for the arts section was on Huey Lewis and the News's The Power of Love (go here). The 1985 hit nearly didn't happen when Huey ruled out writing a song called Back to the Future and was a little uncertain about writing for a movie, something he had never done before. As for the song for which he wrote the lyrics, Huey came up with them while on a run and thoughts about his new wife and two kids were top of mind. Here's Huey'...

Midas touch: how to create the perfect James Bond song

Shirley Bassey set the template – now Billie Eilish will create the theme for No Time to Die. Are these sultry anthems, usually sung by women, actually subverting 007? Goldfinger opens with a shot of a floating fake duck that turns out to be attached to a wetsuit-clad Sean Connery as James Bond. He clambers out of the water, shoots a climbing rope from a gun, overpowers a security guard, plants a plastic explosive and peels off his suit to reveal a white tuxedo. Bond goes on to see the reflectio...

(Not So) Famous Firsts – Woody Allen’s What’s Up Tiger Lily?

For more than sixty years now, Woody Allen has been an icon in the comedy world. Lately, though, it’s obvious that he’ll likely be remembered just as much for his questionable personal life instead of his films. I understand that’s for the best. (It’s important to hold people accountable for their actions.) But that does miss how much of a mark he left on American comedy. For about thirty years or so, Allen was considered not just a comedy legend but one of America’s best exports. People LOVED t...

Joe Fiedler Brings Together Jazz and 'Sesame Street' on 'Open Sesame'

It's gotta be tough being a serious jazz musician. All those serious notes, all those tricky licks and grunty wild improvising. The small audiences. The sense among most folks that you play music that isn't any fun. Add to that doing it all on the trombone: the most awkward of horns, or so folks might have you believe.And trombonist Joe Fiedler is a serious jazz musician: brilliant and daring and no smooth-jazzer playing watered down goop. But MAN is he fun. Not only does he play his horn wi...

Playing at Grown-ups: Don Siegel and Michael Caine Tilt at 'The Black Windmill'

None Fans of director Don Siegel and actor Michael Caine will make haste to sink their teeth into The Black Windmill (1974), which has been pretty much missing in action since a full-screen VHS back in the 1980s. Now Kino Lorber unveils a widescreen Blu-ray of this long-sought thriller from Siegel's great late era, when he signed his output with the onscreen phrase "A Siegel Film", the first words we see on this print; it's also the title of his autobiography (Faber & Faber, 1996). The opening...

The Many Sounds of Love: Composer Nicholas Britell on 'If Beale Street Could Talk'

None If there's a time when words seem completely ineffective, it's when one has the task of describing Nicholas Britell's work. His genre-defying, sensuous film scores always infuse the images with overwhelming, but unintrusive, feeling. In Moonlight, he put classical sounds at the service of a contemporary, heartbreaking, coming-of-age tale, in which we saw a young gay African American boy become an adult despite the odds. Britell's observant score accompanying the protagonist, Chiron, in...

How Marvel's 'X-men: First Class' Classed Up the X-men Films

None As I discussed in my previous article on The Incredible Hulk (Letterier, 2008), the first mentions of "superhero fatigue" began to pop up in 2008. By 2011, that term had fully entered the lexicon. Each time a comic book film was underwhelming, or underperformed at the box office, a hundred articles declared that this could mean the end of the superhero film craze. This practice continues today, seven yeas later, and not one of them has been correct so far. Throughout 2011 there was no sh...
