The Henley Sequence

Following is a short clip from the movie The Social Network, a sequence from Henley Royal Regatta, filmed on the spot earlier this year (see also HTBS 23 July 2010). Music playing is Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt, Act II, Scene 6, 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'. (This famous melody has been use in several films, for example Fritz Lang's M, 1931.) For those of you who are interested in 'movie mistakes', observe that there is no umpire in the box when the boats are crossing the finish line!
