"Music For The Movies, Georges Delerue highlights the career of a quintessential Frenchman whose music shaped many of the most striking films of the French New Wave, Resnais' Hiroshima Mon Amour to Truffaut's Jules and Jim among them. Yet Delerue finished his prolific career as Hollywood's most sought-after film composer (Silkwood, Salvador, Steel Magnolias). This program explores the intersection of French, British and Hollywood film culture through Delerue's collaborations with Truffaut, Oliver Stone (Salvador and Platoon) and Ken Russell (Women in Love), through interviews with Stone and Russell (as well as film scholars and film editors who worked with Delerue) plus clips from Shoot the Piano Player, Jules and Jim, Women il Love, Day for Night, Salvador, A Walk with Love and Death, and The Story of Adèle H."--Conteneur
