At the Movies: Soundtrack Hits (2007) is a 19-track compilation of Van Morrison songs featured in a film at one time or another. Rather than play like an odds-and-ends compilation of soundtrack rarities as one might expect, Soundtrack Hits plays like a best-of collection, including many of Morrison's greatest solo hits along with a couple Them songs ("Gloria," "Baby Please Don't Go"). There are several live versions in place of the studio cuts. The live versions of "Moondance" and "Brown Eyed Girl" are previously unreleased.

John Barry's Academy Award-winning original score for the 1966 film Born Free is one of his most acclaimed works. Pieces like "The Hunt," "Feeding Time," and the main titles are variations on the film's primary musical motif, which was also interpreted by Andy Williams in his rendition of the film's title song. Barry's expressive arrangements and melodies convey the vibrant ("Playtime," "Elsa at Play") and dangerous ("Killing at Kiunga," "Elephant Stampede") aspects of African wildlife. Like the film itself, Born Free's score is lively and moving without becoming forced or saccharine.
