Oustanding in Every Way!
E. Hunter Hale | Salt Lake City, UT | 08/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Both an educational and entertaining look at the classic Hollywood music scoring of the 1930s and 1940s. Host and narrator John Mauceri conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in carefully selected music cues from such classics as Laura, Bride of Frankenstein, Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Adventures of Robin Hood, The Song of Bernadette, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Johnny Belinda, How Green Was My Valley and Red River. Composer David Raksin gives us in depth background on the composing of his famous theme for "Laura". The process of film scoring is touched explored. Anyone who loves the film music of Steiner, Newman, Waxman, Korngold and Raskin will find this a fascinating 85 minutes. This would be great for a film course also. Highly recommended!"

"Fully agree with the previous two reviews - an excellent view of the people in the Hollywood Golden Era created their scores. Very insightful and interesting."
