Inaccurate trailers

TCM is airing Executive Suite at 6:15 PM on January 6. If you watch enough TCM, you've probably seen the trailer. What's interesting about the trailer is the melodramatic music that plays constantly in the background. That was added to the trailer, and is not part of the movie. In fact, director Robert Wise eschewed a music score entirely for Executive Suite, instead using only the normal ambient sounds of a city.

As for the movie itself, it's pretty good, although the ending is a bit predictable. As for that lack of a score, it makes the movie much more enjoyable than the trailre. Executive Suite is well worth watching, and it's available on DVD, too.
