Thread Name: music from the film 'the wicker man'?
Subject: RE: music from the film 'the wicker man'?
I liked the film. When I read Bill Valgardson's short story "Blood Flowers" (also made into a film vignette) I thought for sure he's swiped the story from Wicker Man. But I later had Bill as a professor at university and he'd never even heard of WM. He based his tale, similarly, on the ancient tradition of the Green Man. Incidentally, the Green Man story is an enduring interest of folk musician Mike Harding, see here.
