Fred Ward

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

Fred Ward: Uforia/Management/Farewell.

I have a new episode of my radio show, “The Music and the Movies,” this week. In this hour we look at music in film specifically calculated to keep you in…suspense. Some Benny Herrmann, of course, but I also hope to surprise you with a favorite-but-obscure Jerry Goldsmith score. Check it at the Voice of Vashon site, along with whatever else might be up at the moment (the episodes vanish after two weeks online).

I was on a jury at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in Dubuque, Iowa, in April. Here’s a festival report from that, considering a few documentaries at JDIFF.
