Film Trivia Question

Post by Ave a banana » 22 Oct 2010, 09:25

Tommy Johnson

He had a ‘starring’ yet unaccredited role in one of my favourite films.

While looking to see if this question had been asked before, via the SEARCH button (What’s that? I hear some shout), I found his work has been alluded to many times on FISO forums.

And Villa. I remember one game, Tommy johnson was sat in the centre circle, being sick. It came up on the big screen and the whole crowd made a collective 'urgh!!' sound. Made me laugh, anyway. Suffice to say there were no sliding tackles through the middle of the pitch!! :D

He may well have been, but not the answer I was looking for.

John Thomas Johnson (January 7, 1935 - October 16, 2006) was an American orchestral tuba player. He performed on more than 2,000 film soundtracks, most notably John Williams' Jaws score, in which he played a high-register tuba solo as the melodic theme for the shark.

Thomas "Tommy" Johnson (born 15 January 1971 in Gateshead, England) is a retired footballer who played as a striker for clubs including Notts County, Celtic and Aston Villa.

The two are not related as far as I can tell

Well done all.

Tommy Johnson was the tuba player whose ominous sounds announced the sharks' arrival

Wasn't there only 1 shark (the eponymous one)?

I’m certainly no expert on grammar, but I think the apostrophe makes it correct.
