Subject: RE: Faking Musicianship in Movies
Many years ago now the series "Remington Steele" starred Stephanie Zimbalist. No mention of her famous grandfather, but near the end of the program's run, there was an explosion at the character's home, and as a kind gesture the the Brosnan character gives her a lovely Steinway. Last scene shows her playing said piano, and it looked and sounded like she was playing. It was probably the easiest of all of Chopin's Preludes, but she was playing.
