Wonderfully colorful music has been composed to celebrate the dramatic, artistically heroic lives of painters in films such as "Lust for Life," with Kirk Douglas as Vincent Van Gogh and "Pollock," with Ed Harris as Jackson Pollock.

On this encore edition of Movies on the Radio, host David Garland offers scores by Miklos Rozsa and by Jeff Beal from those movies, and also music by Elliot Goldenthal from "Frida," Alex North from "The Agony and the Ecstasy," and Simon Fisher-Turner from "Caravaggio."

"Rembrandt" 1936, Alexander Kord directing Charles Laughton as the Dutch painter... Second, Hurt Hatfield in an MGM role, his life depicted in paintings as he lived out a parasitical life,yet the paintings revealed his youthful and happy life. Atrophy in reality, the painting but a mirror of what he could have become.In technicolor

A wonderful synthesis.. painting and music.....Kirk Douglas,our tennis partner...a divine providence with Anthony" Tony" Quinn,also. The East LA barrio, Belvedere Jr Hiog Irving Stone,too . Heston,alsdo."A Lust for Life"
