Picks and Pans Review: Program Notes
>HOLLYWOOD HISTORIES Movie lovers should fire up the popcorn Tues., June 6, and settle back for a memorable double feature. The Hollywood Soundtrack Story (American Movie Classics, 8:05 p.m. ET) celebrates the way music has enhanced films from the organ-pumped silent era through the lush orchestrals of the 1940s and '50s to today's pop-driven scores. Among the juicy anecdotes is composer Henry Mancini's account of how he tailored "Moon River" to Audrey Hepburn's voice. Cinema buffs should also catch HBO's The First 100 Years: A Celebration of American Movies (10:15 p.m. ET). From Birth of a Nation to Forrest Gump, the hour-long program masterfully weaves together clips from more than 800 movies.
