This composer wrote scores for eight films-a tiny number compared to the literally hundreds of films scored by major studio composers like Max Steiner. While some studios avoided him for being too "modern," the popularity of his works led to studios frequently seeking him to compose for films on specifically American subjects. The novels of American John Steinbeck made ideal subjects for this composer's style.
