John Williams' Life in Movies: Infographic From Harry Potter to Starwars, John Williams has probably composed the most successful sound tracks in history. But do you know how many movies he's worked on, how many awards he's won and when? John Williams' career in film music includes scores for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jaws and many more. Not only that, he's also got a formidable tally of Oscars, Baftas and Grammys too.
There are so many reasons to love the Star Wars films, but one reason that ranks high on our list is the epic music and scores. While we’ve already seen The Force Awakens multiple times, we want even more (we love the new “Resistance March”). We figure the best way to keep the Force strong within us is to listen to the music as much as possible until we can head to theaters to see it again.

'La La Land' movie - a memorable film, seen on Christmas Day, 2016, with family. "In his first film since 'Whiplash,' Damien Chazelle stages a lavish song-&-dance musical that dares to swoon the old-fashioned way, with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as L.A. dreamers." We were thoroughly involved. Thanks.
“Writing a tune is like sculpting. You get four or five notes, you take one out and move one around, and you do a bit more and eventually, as the sculptor says, ‘In that rock there is a statue, we have to go find it.’” John Williams
