As I remember that awful movie, Steven Allen had no notion of what his
fingers were supposed to be doing when he played a carved up version of the
last movement of K. 622. He just moved his fingers in an irrational way.
Steve Allen a genius of the first division??? He was a talented piano
player maybe but there are damn few geniuses of the first division and he
was never anywhere near that class.
