'The Competition' - shot outside my Russian Hill flat in San Francisco for
several nights. The director wouldn't let me leave for awhile one night
because it would ruin his shot (!).
The scene was toward the end of the movie as the male competitor wanders
outside and hears his girlfriend playing a slow section of this piece and
realizes he's lost the competition. The playing is beautiful and it's by
Daniel Pollack, now teaching at USC, I think.
