  1. We heard the music played in NY on the final restoration screening and it adds to the film and is wonderful. It will be great to hear it in person. It is cool TCM has a big budget and can hire pro musicians for The Grim Game. They are going all out and do not seem to be holding back on spending for The Grim Game event.
