Jason and Golden Fleece

Yesterday morning an old Hercules movie was of those Italian ones dubbed with English. It had the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece (I came in during the Amazons...)

And it was funny when Jason tries to get the Fleece away from the protecting Dragon. The Dragon bellows with Godzilla's roar, and the "music" is from The Forbidden Planet soundtrack, famous for being all electronic music...a first in a movie.

Animal Planet on...I dont know what to watch anymore. First the ocean show, now the animal police.

Noting the Hercules movie soundtrack is from my new found sensitivity to how the movies are made, the sound, and how the cameras take in things. This because of the little videos I'm making of the Creek critters.

Even the worst of movies is a lot of work, and the effort goes unheralded, even in the best and frequently watched movies.

Robert Graves was working on a historical novel, Hercules My Shipmate, when he got sidetracked and started writing the White Goddess.
