Is John Williams A Thief?

I once noticed that the HOME ALONE score sounded a lot like The Nutcracker. I was watching a press kit generic Making Of doc and noticed that they used The Nutcracker as a temp score. Here's the opening titles.

Here is The Dance Of The Sugar Plumb Fairy

Here is a piece of Home Alone Score called "Holiday Flight"

Here is The Russian Dance

I'm not even sure it's limited to Home Alone. Take a listen to this bit of John Williams' SUPERMAN score entitled "Planet Krypton"

And now listen to "Sprach Zarathustra", also known as the theme to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

Astute observations or rantings from someone doped up on cough medicine? YOU DECIDE.
