Hey, this Oscar winner for Best Picture is 60 years old this month. And that was back in the day when every movie came out with a long playing album sound track. This one's in stereo. Wowee!
So, we're in the throes of when Hollywood starts to release what they think is their Oscar-worthy fare. We'll be the judge of that. You know the routine, guys. I'll sift through the LA Times movie pages and give you my knee-jerk reaction to what's cluttering our theaters this week. Heck, there might be something you actually want to see. And then download the soundtrack off of iTunes.
