    You really know your stuff! I'd personally be so into the program tuned for Kungfu Panda especially by Micha Ge:swoon:

    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:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_Ikxi6Zx4A

    Abitbol and Bernadis also skated to 'Chariots of Fire', they used it in 1998:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DhjjfjJ8SY

    Laurent Tobel used 'Pink Panther' in 1997:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6CcGLX5XMg

    Jill Trenary skated to the lovely 'On Golden Pond' music too:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7bGQ0_UuSU

    Victoria Volchkova skated to 'Gone with the wind':
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UO6FKK0yQk

    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:

    Akiko!

    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?

    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':
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyiToKJgjs4

    Lipinski's 'I could have danced all night' from 'My fair lady':
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJQwUr_V914

    From all her movie soundtrack competitive programs I liked her 1997 lp the best:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBbDHZOZf2Q

    'The Truman Show' has an enjoyable soundtrack too, I think this is one of my favourite programs of Lambiel:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCedRHKi5nE

    Obertas/Slavnov skated to it as well:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CllOoHilU8o

    Leonova/Khvalko had a nice program on music from Pocahontas:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnKmMjuQYnQ

    Ekaterina Gordeeva as always lovely, here skating to 'The umbrellas of Cherbourg':
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-mLfXXRKdY

    I love this program from Alissa Czisny:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IM0c16_lYtQ

    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. :)

    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:

    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.
