He was the titan of film music. His talent towered above the others, so he was the perfect composer to write music for King Kong. Max Steiner's 1933 score for King Kong was innovative, and ushered in a new era of movie music. On this week's Movies on the Radio, host David Garland continues his introduction to Steiner's work, featuring Kong, The Son of Kong, The Fountainhead, The Searchers, A Summer Place, and more.
