RMCB,


May I humbly suggest changing the title of your poll from:
Do listen while watching: Classic composer films

To:
Listening to Musical Films Based on Classical Music

May I humbly suggest changing your question from:
In the sound of music whitch's your favorite movie?

To:
Which of these films featuring classical music is your favorite?

My favorite two pieces of music:
  1. Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
  2. Beethoven's Fifth Symphony
My all time favorite film, Fantasia (1940), opens with an orchestral version of Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

RMCB,

Thank you for updating the title of your list. If/when your poll were to go live, the title of your list is what becomes the poll title.

By the way, someone else may recommend a more appropriate title.

"Based on" implies the movie follows the same story as the music. And a musical is a film where people sing/perform music throughout the film within the story.

There are not only classical composers in the list, so I think you are both a bit off.

The original title was interesting, perhaps modified to: Listen While Watching: Classic Composer Films

I like the last title proposed. "Listening While Watching: Classic Composer Films". Can you change the title of the poll?
