Book Excerpt of the Day

"John Williams three-note motif for Jaws is so effective and memorable that one need only hear it briefly hummed to identify it. The theme has transcended its connection with the movie, having come to represent imminent danger of any kind. It is rare film music that carries that kind of cultural collateral."

– from Chapter 6: A Fearful Earful of Kristopher Spencer’s Film and Television Scores, 1950-1979
