Out Of Africa
The second of Barry's entries this year, Out of Africa is also at its highest ever position
Out Of Africa is a perfect example of a composer — John Barry — managing to capture a picture in music. It's music in the key of savannah. The film — the story of a rich, bored Danish woman who finds love with a free-spirited handsome hunter in turbulent East Africa — won seven Academy Awards in total, including one for Barry himself.
