When a movie has little dialogue and even fewer sound effects, what keeps the audience tethered emotionally to the story? And how can a film seamlessly blend the idea of death and a child's wide-eyed wonderment? Through its music, of course. Here are four composers whose work covers all of the above as well as a solemn spirituality and a playful pizazz.

The people who have most recently come into Steven Price's life would be amazed to learn that two years ago, this ebullient, outgoing man was virtually a shut-in. They'd find it hard to picture him spending day after day sitting in front of the television set in his pajamas--bored, lonely and depressed. Price can't see himself living like that, either. Not anymore. But there was a time when the wheelchair-bound La Habra resident didn't believe he had a choice.

Ronald Brownstein correctly points out several of the major changes in American society that occurred during the Clinton administration: welfare reform, an emphasis on work and responsibility and a balanced budget ("Clinton's Biggest Gains Not on Conservative Critics' Radar," June 28). These changes resulted in the most significant and rapid gains by the poor ever. Attributing these actions to Bill Clinton and the Democrats is truly a revisionary approach to history. Brownstein also points out that "his lack of political discipline produced a leftward drift during his first two years that helped the GOP seize Congress in 1994."

In most places, an 8,100-square-foot house with five bedrooms, six baths and a swimming pool that had been remodeled by a master architect would be considered the height of luxury. And if Ira Gershwin had penned lyrics for such standards as "The Man That Got Away" during the decades he lived there, all the better. Not so much in Beverly Hills, a city of stratospherically priced property, where many residents prefer to build their castles from scratch - and have the scratch to build exactly what they want.
