The Score

Sundays @ 5PM

The Score
is a weekly celebration of symphonic music in film, and a fascinating guided tour through America's best-loved art form. It includes timely box office tie-ins and enticing weekly themes. Host Edmund Stone is a classically trained Shakespearean actor whose background includes a variety of stage and screen roles.


Evil Sidekicks:  What's a film without a good bad guy? And what antagonist could do all their dirty work without a henchman?  This week on The Score, host Edmund Stone brings out the best music for the baddest of the bad, evil sidekicks in movies. Jeer along as Odd Job and Jaws give James Bond a hard time in Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me; sneer at Horace and Jasper in Cruella, mutter with the Minions and be spellbound by the evil of Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix.


Origin Stories:  Everyone gets their start somewhere. This week on The Score, host Edmund Stone has all the back-stories on favorite film characters before they were famous.  Find out how the Avenger Natasha Romanoff became the Black Widow; see what was going on in The Shire with The Hobbit and get a look into what Star Fleet Academy was like for cadets who would one day be the crew of the Enterprise in Star Trek.


Ship in a Bottle:  Set a course for adventure with a show all about sailing ships of old.  Be on the bridge with Master and Commander: Far Side of the World, brave the open ocean with Kon Tiki and Vikings: Valhalla, and feel the salt air with The Sea Hawk. It's some of the best nautical tales, told by the best.


A New Look at the Old West:  The western is the quintessential American movie genre.  This week on The Score, saddle up with Edmund Stone and enjoy music from movies that go beyond the stereotypes. Take a new look at the Old West with movies that tell tales of living on the frontier, and larger than life heroes and villains such as Power of the Dog, The Harder They Fall, Tombstone and more.
