(Since we have a thread about Pictures at an Exhibition, lets stay on a theme of Mussorgsky…)
This is aimed at Styxx or anyone else who has worked on The Wizard of Oz lately – I was watching the movie last night when suddenly I heard some Mussorgsky. It was at the witches castle and the music seemed to be lifted straight from Night on Bald Mountain (or whatever the real name of that is), it sounded almost note for note.
To somebody who has looked at the music - Was I imagining things or is that really in there?

They are so evil, not crediting unoriginal music . . . tisk tisk tisk
Although I guess back in those days they didn't credit much . . .
