The Grand Feature Film Orchestra performing LIVE film scores with the movies
SUPERMAN: ARCTIC GIANTS (Animated Featurette) - musical score by Sammy Timberg (1942)
The GFFO is dedicated to studying, reconstructing, and performing historic cinematic music. Sometimes this includes The Fleischer brothers' classic Superman masterpieces that shaped the golden age of animation. Even Disney owes many of its techniques to the groundbreaking duo of Dave and Max Fleischer. The famous composer, Sammy Timberg, wrote the iconic score to these short Technicolor gems in 1942.
When a team of scientists uncovers a prehistoric dinosaur, they bring it to the united states to display at the Museum of Natural Science. Unfortunately, a malfunction in the refrigeration unit brings the arctic giant to life with devastating consequences. Can Superman save the day?
