Steiner: Music for the Bette Davis films ‘All This, and Heaven Too’ (1940) ‘A Stolen Life’ (1946)
The Warner executives originally intended extensive use of Debussy’s La Mer to underscore ‘A Stolen Life’; however this was eventually dropped and Max Steiner was free to compose an original score. The music used within the film demonstrates Steiner’s more restrained and less complex scoring, looking ahead to the style he would adopt for most of his scores composed during the fifties and beyond.
