Presented both in-person and remotely, the Movie Music Romance series is currently comprised of five separate 75-minute presentations, each presented live and followed by a brief Q&A session with producer/presenter John LeGear. This brief introduction is intended to acquaint visitors with the unique style of these film history presentations, which have won over audiences at community colleges, senior centers and public libraries since 2016.
Elvis Presley rocked the house in 1963 with this recording of "Bossa Nova Baby," which we spiced up a bit with the "viva max" recording, and then blended it with "You Can't Say No in Acapulco" from the film "Fun in Acapulco."
Presented both in-person and remotely, American History and Today touches on significant historic events and pop culture milestones between 1914 and present day with 400 photographs, documentary film footage, film clips and music that has proven to captivate audiences. This 3-hour presentation is featured remotely in two 75-minute segments, usually over two days in a given week at public libraries, community colleges and senior centers. John LeGear holds a brief Q&A session after each segment.
Our multimedia presentation covers American history from the start of World War I in 1914 thru present day. And we sprinkle in pop culture milestones--music, film clips, documentary footage and even political cartoons--to add perspective, and a good bit of fun. Older audiences sometimes describe it as "a lyrical walk down memory lane."
"Movie Music Romance" and its sequels "MMR2" and "MMR3" are dynamic multimedia film history shows compiled and presented live by TimComm President John LeGear. Traditionally presented live at community colleges, public libraries and senior centers, the shows also became available "remotely" in the summer of 2020 so as to entertain audiences anywhere in the United States.
