IMDb 20 years old today

Sunday, 17 October 2010 14:43

IMDb.com is 20 years old today, October 17, 2010
As part of the celebrations, IMDb founder & CEO Col Needham is going to re-watch the film he saw on video that evening in 1990 - Body Heat!!

John Barry did not approve the Body Heat CD mix by producer John Lasher and apparently regards the resultant CD as "unofficial". He has not spoken to Lasher since it was released.

Miklos Rozsa was the original choice to score Body Heat (as a sort of homage to his score for Double Indemnity - a much earlier film with similarities) but refused, saying he found the film "disgusting".

Rozsa and Barry had shared the bill at the 1972 Filmharmonic concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
