Item description for The Magic of Music in Film by Anne Krikler...

Most film-goers are unaware of the fact that, in the background, there is usually music to be heard, though specific themes and other compositions may stress the actions that are seen, usually in a most attractive and exciting way. This quality is best perceived when the composer has exceptional talent. Too little is known about the good composers who usually come from a background of classical training and experience The film-goer may be quite unaware of the fact that the music has in many cases enhanced the quality of the film. It has been exhilarating to explore this aspect and to identify the ways in which the relatively lesser known composers have also provided this quality; but the titans deserve the greatest attention and highest praise..

Reviews - What do customers think about The Magic of Music in Film?

Why Was This Book Published?  Apr 19, 2008
This book is a total waste of time and money for anyone interested in the art of film music, although it wouldn't take more than 30 minutes to read from cover to cover. My main complaint is that Ms. Krikler fails to explain what is the magic she hears in film music. Instead we get a few dry sentences on 59 different composers (John Williams rates less than half a page.), and brief synopsis of their films, which are at times unjustifiably inaccurate, as, for example, in her brief summary of TAXI DRIVER, the author claims Travis kills the 12 year old prostitute, Iris! There are many important books written on the history of and the composers of music for movies. This is not one of them.
pioneering and enjoyable  Oct 16, 2007
This is a wonderful little book, of great interest to filmgoer and music lover alike. Five stars despite the fact that two of my favorites are not included --Friedrich Hollander and, above all, Werner Richard Heymann.
