Just got back from the ESO’s performance of some Beethoven, including the 9th symphony. It inspires me to make this list of movie characters that like Beethoven. See if you can spot a theme.
- Alex from Clockwork Orange
- Casanova Frankenstein from Mystery Men
- The DEA Officer from The Professional
- Hans Gruber from Die Hard (or at least Hitler)
- The Psycho from Psycho (Eroica!)
I think that being on the web is all about the sharing of information. I find that this particular set of info is not really covered anywhere else, so this blog post will serve as the internet’s official database of movie characters that listen to Beethoven. Anyone can contribute, I am envisioning at least a million entries…
