Tim WC1 "timwc1"
 
The Four Feathers [1939] [DVD]
The Four Feathers [1939] [DVD]
"From Rozsa's London days (before his move to Hollywood), a stirring score for a romantic drama of the British Empire."
Double Indemnity [DVD] [1944]
Double Indemnity [DVD] [1944]
"Half the depth, suspense and ambiguity of Billy Wilder's famous film noir comes from Rozsa's wonderfully rich and silvery strings."
The Lost Weekend [DVD]
The Lost Weekend [DVD]
"Another Billy Wilder urban drama: Rozsa uses the theramin (electronic instrument) to underline the hero's alcoholism, then rescues him with a love theme to die for."
Spellbound [1945] [DVD]
Spellbound [1945] [DVD]
"Rozsa and Hitchcock were both Oscar-nominated for this Freudian thriller, but Rozsa won: he uses the theramin to represent insanity, and later made the love theme into a piano concerto."
Sahara [DVD] [2002]
Sahara [DVD] [2002]
"Gripping desert war drama with Humphrey Bogart and just a few bursts from Rozsa, swirling and dramatic."
Ben-Hur [1959] [DVD]
Ben-Hur [1959] [DVD]
"Rozsa became famous for his music for widesecreen epics: this is arguably the best - a huge, grave score for which he won his third Oscar."
El Cid (Two Disc Deluxe Edition) [DVD]
El Cid (Two Disc Deluxe Edition) [DVD]
"Another historical epic that Rozsa takes incredibly seriously: he lived in Madrid during the production, and the score bursts with Spanish rhythms and passion."
The Green Berets [DVD] [1968]
The Green Berets [DVD] [1968]
"John Wayne's pro-Vietnam War adventure is made almost watchable by Rozsa's sheer musical professionalism."
The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes [DVD]
The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes [DVD]
"Rozsa adapted his Violin Concerto to make the exquisite score for this great Billy Wilder film: Holmes plays the main tune on his fiddle, and Rozsa appears on screen conducting a ballet."
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad [DVD] [1974]
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad [DVD] [1974]
"Enjoyable flying-carpet movie with an amazingly inventive score from Rozsa: God knows why he lavished such creativity on it."
Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid [DVD]
Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid [DVD]
"Steve Martin's spoof of 1940s film noir was Rozsa' last film: partly adapting some of his own music from 40 years earlier, Rozsa plays it brilliantly dead-pan."
