You really know your stuff! I'd personally be so into the program tuned for Kungfu Panda especially by Micha Ge
How did that come up so late?! This program was one of the definitive programs last season!
Nice thread, so many nice memories and forgotten programs worthy of watching again. The few movie themed programs that come to my mind are amongst others:
sp of Lucinda Ruh on 'Lawrence of Arabia' music:
Abitbol and Bernadis also skated to 'Chariots of Fire', they used it in 1998:
Laurent Tobel used 'Pink Panther' in 1997:
Jill Trenary skated to the lovely 'On Golden Pond' music too:
Victoria Volchkova skated to 'Gone with the wind':
What about all the programs with a Mary Poppins theme (didn't Witt, G&G and Wylie do a number on that music)? Or Oda with Super Mario brothers soundtrack. 'Broken Arrow' music accompanied some nice programs too with very different themes, Schwarz and Müller used it, perhaps in 1999 and didn't Yagudin have that too before changing it? If I remember well, Schwarz and Müller used that music to ask people to think about domestic violence, some claimed they were attention seekers but they said they really cared about that subject and wanted to do something about it.
West Side Story has been used a few times too, Witt, G&G and the Duchesnays come to mind although I'm sure more people have used it:
Perhaps you're thinking about the Tanja Szewchenko sp in 1996 I believe:
This is strange. I definitely knew I'd seen a Forest Gump program skated by a lady in a pale green dress, but there is no way I could have seen this back in 1996 - I didn't even follow skating back then. I wonder where I could have come across it...
Not a pale green dress, but it's pale - Katy Taylor skater to Forest Gump Suite in 2006. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXePE6tOeBA
Maybe that's what you remember?
Tanja Szewczenko skated to Forest Gump in a pale green and white dress in 96.
Oops, meant to post this earlier and see that someone beat me to the punch.
No, it has to have been Szewchenko - the performance I remembered was definitely from the 1990s and I remembered the dress, I just figured it was a couple of years later. Maybe I did see it in real time, without being aware of who I was watching.
Ah, I had forgotten that one. Thanks for sharing.
Thinking about more movie themed programs:
Lyons/Wells on music from 'A fish called Wanda':
Lipinski's 'I could have danced all night' from 'My fair lady':
From all her movie soundtrack competitive programs I liked her 1997 lp the best:
'The Truman Show' has an enjoyable soundtrack too, I think this is one of my favourite programs of Lambiel:
Obertas/Slavnov skated to it as well:
Leonova/Khvalko had a nice program on music from Pocahontas:
Ekaterina Gordeeva as always lovely, here skating to 'The umbrellas of Cherbourg':
I love this program from Alissa Czisny:
Josée Chouinard's 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' program was memorable too:
Thank you everyone for the info about the ladies who skated to the Forest Gump Suite!
Scott Davis did a memorable program to West Side Story in the mid 1990's.
The Kween's Pocahontas program (including the song "Just Around the River Bend," etc.), and Amanda & Mark's Pocahontas exhibition program from 2011 US Nationals in Greensboro, NC
I agree with a lot of those already mentioned, especially Ricky's "Sherlock," Ashley's "Red Violin," "Black Swan," and "Pollock," Jeremy's "Life Is Beautiful," and Tara's "My Fair Lady" and S&S. And all of Paul's. Paul was really the king of movie scores.
Nancy kerrigans Beauty and the Beast was her only Lp that I liked although it was not skated to its potential
Katarina Witt's "Robin Hood": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y94l4FauvHc
Klimova/Ponomarenko's "Romeo and Juliet": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roIjwsfWnP0
Love the costumes in both programs too!!!
Can`t find a link, but my favourite was Brian Boitano in 1995 (?) skating to "Legends of the Fall"
Thank you for the reminder. That was one of the best interpretations of that music for me.
On a different note, Brian Orser also skated to the Pink Panther theme in 1985:
Thank you for the Jill Trenatry's link to On Golden Pond, really nice one !
Don't forget about Kurt's Casablanca!
Thinking of scores, I'm really surprised there aren't many people skating to music from The Artist this year. I loved the music in that film, especially the music for the final dance scene.
I posted a link to it in post #7
Michelle Kwan -The World is Not Enough
Michelle Kwan-The Red Violin
Michelle also skated to the Rach 3 in 1998, shortly after it was the subject of the movie Shine.
