One of Barry's best loved soundtracks is a non-mover this year

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.

Out of Africa (1985).
