John Williams and Indy 4

From this interview with him, we find out the two most interesting (and ironic) facts about John Williams:

1. He never goes to the movies.
2. He rarely listens to classical music.

Williams is set to begin working on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at the beginning of October. No matter how good that film is, it's about to get a whole lot better.

He is one of those composers whose music improves the movies in which it's used. In my opinion, his soundtracks for the Star Wars movies, for example, are a big reason why they were so successful.
