But!!! This film had one of the greatest and moving scores - typical of such a fine and talented composer as Miklos Rozsa. Though 'King of Kings' the story might have lost something in the story to me, the wonderful music has kept it one of my library classics and will make me watch it and get caught up in it right from the overture. Miklos Rozsa was the last of the Master Composers from Hollywood's "Golden Age". This score was written just 2 years after his masterpiece, Ben-Hur (possibly the best movie score ever composed. It was an amazing achievement to come up with such original music considering he was revisiting the same genre with similar material so soon.
Miklós Rózsa (Hungarian: ; 18 April 1907 – 27 July 1995) was a Hungarian-American composer trained in Germany (1925–1931), and active in France (1931–1935), the United Kingdom (1935–1940), and the United States (1940–1995), with extensive sojourns in Italy from 1953. Best known for his nearly one hundred film scores, he nevertheless maintained a steadfast allegiance to absolute concert music throughout what he called his "double life.
