Don't see it for this (or any other) reason, but Marked for Death has a terrific reggae-flavored sound track, featuring on-and off-camera singing by Jimmy Cliff There's more good movie music around too: Randy Newman's evocative score for Avalon adds to its mood of discovery and determination. John Lee Hooker's and Taj Mahal's blues work well in Hot Spot. There are swingy period-style tunes—arranged by George Fenton—in the World War II film Memphis Belle. And both Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep sing fetchingly in Postcards from the Edge, Streep getting as down-home as a lady from New Jersey can on Shel Silverstein's country tune "I'm Checkin' Out."
