Film Score Rundowns
Bill Wrobel and the Underscore
This website was priveleged over the years to post Bill Wrobel's analyses of five of Korngold's film scores. Three of these "rundowns" were exclusively posted here. We are in the process of re-posting these rundowns, two or three of which will be newly updated just this year.
A film, radio & television music researcher since 1982 when the Herrmann Papers first became available to the public, Bill Wrobel actively researches the film and televsion scores of major composers, particularly Max Steiner, Dimitri Tiomkin, Jerry Goldsmith, and many, many others. Herrmann and Steiner are his favorite composers, but Korngold has a special place as well.
Bill Wrobel is a frequent contributor to the Talking Herrmann forum since its inception in early 1999, located within the official Bernard Herrmann Society. He wrote a reference paper for The Journal of Film Music (Vol. 1, No. 2/3) titled, "Self-Borrowing in the Music of Bernard Herrmann." His educational website, Film Score Rundowns has been online since January, 1999.
