    Default Chopin Etude in a movie?

    Hi all!
    I didn't know whether to post in Identifying Music or here. I was wondering if the Chopin Etude Op. 10 No. 3 has ever been featured in a major movie. I can't remember where I heard it first!
    Thanks.

    I don't know if it's ever been in a film (I would imagine so, but I know I heard it at least on a TV advert once before), but there are apparently many modern derivatives of the piece:

    I know it was featured fairly prominently in a 1954 Universal remake of MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION starring Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson. That's the only film that comes to mind, though.

    I remember it being used in a movie called 1,000 Clowns (1965) even though there does not seem to be credit given. I hummed that for many moons before discovering what it was. I saw it at age 11 on a Saturday matinee in a small town and there was no access to music as there is today. My favorite Chopin piece.
