Gone with the Wind
Gone with the Wind shoots up eight places compared to last year's chart, but this is Max Steiner's only entry in the top 100.
It's plain to see why Steiner is known as the 'father of film music' when listening to this all-American score. The Austrian composer was one of the most in-demand composers of his time, penning music for such Hollywood classics as King Kong, Casablanca, and Little Women. In 1939, Steiner was hired to write for Gone with the Wind, a film which is acknowledged as one of the all-time greats. Steiner was given only three months to compose a large amount of music for the film, whilst at the same time scoring We Are Not Alone, Dark Victory and Four Wives for Warner. The hard work would pay off: not only did he earn an Academy Award nomination, but the music has gone on to endure as much as the film itself. In 2005, the American Film Institute ranked Max Steiner's score for the film the second greatest of all time.
