Chess in Film, Set to Music


The YouTube "chess in film" compilation videos of Lucio Etruscas, which have received prominent notice from ChessBase and The New York Times, are definitely worth a look. If nothing else they present a high speed trivia challenge to the chess in film enthusiast -- though it would be nice to have a filmography for each, and ChessBase will probably succeed in compiling that. Perhaps Bob Basala, author of Chess in the Movies, could help (see my reviews and discussion here, here and here).

Everytime I read one of your posts, I turn green with envy, and say to myself " why can't I post like this on my chess blog but, then I take a step back , catch my breath , and remind me that Jealously is one of the seven deadly sins which would prevent me from fulfilling my destiny, which is be on the winning side of Good over Evil.

Now to get serious, hell of a good post on " Chess in The Movies" ........diamondback
