Name That Film

This song is from an Academy Award winning film. I’m pretty sure. In any event, I have been working on it all day and it’s time to get it out into the world.

It was written over 100 years ago by Scott Joplin. He was born on November 24, 1868 and he passed away on April 1, 1917. He was an American composer and pianist. He is also known as the “King of Ragtime” because of the fame achieved for his ragtime compositions, music that was born out of the African-American community.

During his brief career, he wrote over 100 original ragtime pieces, one ragtime ballet, and two operas. One of his first and most popular pieces, the “Maple Leaf Rag”, became ragtime’s first and most influential hit, and has been recognized as the archetypal rag. Joplin considered ragtime to be a form of classical music and largely disdained the practice of ragtime such as that in honky tonk.
