If you love movies, then you know the music of James Horner. The Academy Award-winning composer died in plane crash Monday at the age of 61, leaving behind a breathtaking body of work that included more than 100 movie scores, among them such celebrated films as Aliens, Glory, Apollo 13, Braveheart, and Titanic.
Yahoo Movies asked farmer Gregg Pulver, who grows about twelve hundred acres of corn every year in upstate New York, to comment on the cornfield scenes in Interstellar, Field of Dreams, North by Northwest, and six other starchy films.
In Iowa for a Field of Dreams 25th anniversary celebration, actor Kevin Costner did the obvious. Dennis Magee—The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports hundreds of onlookers watched as Costner played catch with his boys, 7-year-old Cayden and 5-year-old Hayes. The movie fans clapped when the boys made a play, prompting Costner to note, “We don’t usually have this many people when we do this.” Costner and other actors traveled to the field near Dyersville in northeast Iowa to celebrate the 1989 movie about an Iowa farmer who carved a baseball field out of his corn crop.
April 21 marks the 25th anniversary of “Field of Dreams,” the metaphysical baseball film that single-handedly made Iowa a tourist destination. Kevin Costner reflects on a line that continues to live on 25 years later.
