The list author says: "From near the beginning of the sound era through 1965, Max Steiner was the most famous and influential composer for American films in his day. The "Steiner sound" (a full orchestra blend of lush European romanticism and Wagnerian leitmotifs) dominated American films in the 1930's and 1940's. Max Steiner won three Oscars in his career for "The Informer", "Now, Voyager" and "Since You Went Away" but may be most remembered for his scores for three classic giants of American cinema - "King Kong" (1933), "Gone With the Wind" (1939) and "Casablanca" (1943)."
"Max Steiner's most famous score (by far, the most famous film score until 1977's "Star Wars") - the 1939 David O. Selznick romance extravaganza overflowing with effective motifs, resounding action and rich romantic lyricism. Oscar nomination for Best Score with the toughest nominated Oscar music competition ever ("The Wizard of Oz" won)."
"A last minute 1944 replacement score for David O. Selznick's tribute to the American Home Front in World War II and Steiner's third Oscar win after "The Informer" (1935) and "Now, Voyager" (1942). A gorgeous forgotten film score masterpiece."
"The title might seem to indicate an odd adventure outing, but this is a terrific Warner Brothers action and romance horse opera in the shadow of "Gone with the Wind". A brilliant 1941 adventure score, not to be missed."
