Overview

Sony's two-disc Essential Hollywood compilation collects 27 of the silver screen's greatest themes. While most choices are obvious (Jaws, Gone with the Wind, Star Wars, Lawrence of Arabia etc.), a few, like Max Steiner's "King Kong/The Forgotten Island/Natives/Sacrificial Dance/The Gate of Kong" and Erich Korngold's "Kings Row/Main Title" are pleasant surprises. There are countless other collections like this out there, but as far as quality goes Essential Hollywood features a decent cross-section that pays its respects to both the past and the future of celluloid without coming off as over-bearing.
