The Godfather with Live Music by The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra March 27th

3 March 2015 8:23 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“It’s a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.”

The Godfather Screens with live music accompaniment by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra March 27th at Powell Hall in St. Louis

I’ve often said there’s nothing better than watching silent movies with live music, but what about watching sound movies with live music? When the movie is The Godfather and the score is being performed by the award-winning St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, it just becomes one of those events that can’t be missed. Justin Freer conducts Nino Rota’s beloved score performed live by the Stl Symphony with Francis Ford Coppola’s Academy Award®-winning full-length masterpiece shown from the Powell Hall stage beginning at 7pm Friday March 27th.  It’s an offer you cannot refuse!

Rod Taylor, the Australian-born actor who starred in George Pal’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine” and in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” then decades later made a memorable swan-song appearance as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” died Wednesday of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 84.

His daughter Felicia, a former CNN correspondent, confirmed the news Thursday.

Taylor made his feature starring debut in 1960 sci-fier “The Time Machine,” portraying a fictionalized Wells, who invents a time machine in Victorian England and travels to the distant future. He also starred in a brief ABC adventure series, “Hong Kong.”

The next year he voiced the lead canine, Pongo, in Disney’s “101 Dalmatians.” Even after an impressive performance in Hitchcock’s well-received 1963 “The Birds” (in photo above), the actor never quite made it into the first rank of Hollywood actors.
