King Kong (1933)

Music historian / interviewee

Released by Turner Home Entertainment

I am thrilled to be a part of “RKO Production 601: The Making of `Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World,'” the elaborate, behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the 1933 classic. I talked about composer Max Steiner, provided a mini-analysis of the score’s themes, and discusssed its impact on future generations of film composers.
