    She Fell Among Thieves

    "She Fell Among Thieves," the BBC/WGBH adaptation of a Dornford Yates novel that was the very first "Mystery" program, has a marvellous organ score, and there is a wedding scene where we get to see the organ being pumped by hand as it is played by the forger and henchman Acorn (who is he and what was he in?). Don't know if that's the organ in the score.

    At the end of the movie, Brassed Off, the Grimsby Colliery brass band plays at Royal Albert Hall, which was really Birmingham City Hall where this was filmed. The big Wm. Hill organ rises above the band. Had never realized it was placed so high up.

    The French movie 'Je Te Mangerais' ('You will be mine'), 2008, has an excerpt from Franck's Chorale No 3 played live on a pipe organ (from memory about 20 minutes in). The organ looks fairly modern and has some superb reeds. Since the movie features piano students I assume that the organ may belong to a conservatory. The movie apparently won an award at the Montreal Festival, but I just wish the dialogue did not have to interrupt the music!

    The movie "the Bostonian " begins and ends with organ music and film includes close-ups of the performer.

    The performer, who was improvising so far as I am aware, was Nigel Allcoat.

    You can save a lot of time by checking this web-site:-

    http://theatreorgans.com/movies.htm

    It's a fairly comprehensive list of movies featuring organs.

    Newberry Memorial Organ, Yale U.

    The other day, I watched Everybody's Fine. Robert DeNiro plays a father, whose grown-up children couldn't come home for a holiday, so he travels cross the country to see each of his kids. One son (Sam Rockwell), a musician, lives in Denver.

    The music hall DeNiro walks into happens to be Woolsey Hall, where he meets Rockwell. Obviously, the great Skinner organ is in the movie. They probably have no idea how bleedin' powerful this instrument is.

    Jumping into this thread a bit late I know, but this is too good not to share--

    Comet Empire theme from Season Two of the anime Uchuu Senkan Yamato (Space Battleship Yamato). Positively hair-raising!
