When is the music used in Groundhog (I recall something more jazzy at the film's climax), I'll add it with pleasure but to make the addition more complete, can I have 3 other uses of that rhapsody in other films or cartoons or even TV ads? Thank you.

ElM,

Phil initially haltingly learns "Rapsodie on a Theme of Paganini" from the piano teacher. As he goes through successive replays of Ground Hog's day his command of the piece improved. When he plays the piano towards the end of the film he initially plays Elizabeth Buccheri's aragement and transitions to Terry Fryer's jazz arrangement.

OK, it's the piano lesson's music :)
Are there any other notable uses of that theme?

ElM,

Off hand, I cannot say for sure. I do not believe so, however, I will need to view the film again to be sure.

I'm planning to add the option (with a different text if I can't get enough examples) but it's just to put the right picture

ElMo,

I re-read your poll opening. I cannot find a popular film other than Groundhog Day (1993 film) that has Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. It's probably best not to add this piece of music to your poll.

I didn't expect Paganini to get the 2nd position, I'm glad it was suggested!
