With bold, original scores for films such as A Streetcar Named Desire, The Misfits, Spartacus, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, composer Alex North introduced a modern, American sensibility to film music. In advance of North's centenary (Dec. 4), host David Garland presents the first of two programs displaying North's genius. This week Garland is joined by North enthusiast Jon Burlingame, who teaches film music history at the University of Southern California.
