Odds are if you’ve been to the movies in the past four weeks, you saw Wreck-It Ralph, Argo, Flight or Skyfall. They’re the top four movies at the box office at the moment and each have their own merits. One is great family fare with fun geeky spin. The next is a taut thriller in the mold of old Hollywood.

As photo (or video) ops go, this one is among the best: video footage of Steven Spielberg and John Williams tapping out an early draft of the main E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial theme on a piano. Whether the camera just happened to be there, or if this was designed specifically as a publicity stunt matters to some extent — it would be nice to know this was really a spontaneous moment — but either way it’s neat to see the birth of one of the more recognizable ’80s movie themes.
