My piece this week for the Scarecrow blog, and etc.

West Side Story.

I have a new episode of “The Music and the Movies” this week, this one devoted to music from 1971 films. Listen to that one here. Produced by Voice of Vashon.

The previous show, on music from Marlon Brando films, remains online for a few more days.

Just one addition to my other blog, What a Feeling!, this week: a vintage review of David Jones’ Jacknife, a Vietnam-hangover movie with strong performances by Robert De Niro, Ed Harris, and Kathy Baker.
