If Schubert is to appear in a graphic novel, it is not surprising to learn that he has made numerous appearances in film.
It would seem he first made his big screen appearance in the 1926 film Franz Schuberts letzte Liebe. More recently, his music was featured on the soundtracks of films such as The Sixth Sense, Good Will Hunting, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Avengers.
According to the International Movie Database (IMDb), there are 390 films and television shows in which Schubert’s music has made an appearance. From Looney Tunes, to Batman, to Glee – the legacy of Schubert’s music has filled the speakers of the silver screen.
