Front Cover of Max Steiner Documentary Film Video

Max Steiner arrived in Hollywood as a penniless musician from Europe at the beginning of the last century. After a productive career on Broadway he headed west and introduced a new art form to Hollywood…the musical underscore. His ideas were revolutionary. He worked on over 300 films, including timeless classics such as Gone with the Wind, King Kong and Casablanca. Steiner’s legacy lives on today through the many composers who followed in his footsteps.

“What a grand celebration of a man who virtually invented film scoring as we know it. Friedberg brings the worlds of Vienna, early Broadway and the Golden Age of Hollywood to vivid life in order to tell his story. I am proud to play a small role in this wonderful film.”
Leonard Maltin
