    Just wondering if this film would have received so much attention without the background music by Rachmaninov. For anyone who doesn't know (can't imagine who) it's the 2nd Piano Concerto. When anyone says they don't understand the appeal of classical music I refer them to another bit of Rachmaninov which, as always with this Russian master, is full of sweeping melodies I don't know if it has been used in a film but I'd be surprised if it hasn't.
