A tiny piece of the score I've always been taken with is the last bit of the otherwise unused overture. It erupts when Antony turns his back on the agitated mob after his famous eulogy, walks towards and past the camera, and gives a little smirk.

In effect, then, you are giving credit to the unknown somebody (perhaps a music editor) who chose to insert that piece in the scene. Nathan Platte's fine Selznick book has made us realize how many scoring decisions in Spellbound were actually made by the de facto music director, Audray Granville.


That's right. Even before I found out the source of that music and that it had been dropped into that scene, the spotting seemed so atypical of Rozsa. As I said, more Alex North-style.

Shakespeare demands asides. Some funny, some not so funny. The film is a classic hybrid of Brit pop and Yank slang of it's day. That scoring for the wind a rustlin is just about right for the theatrical take on "the Ides Of March."

Aside: There is a similar sort of connivance in Gibson's Apocalypto. At the top of the sacrificial steps, the Mayan ruler and the high priest exchange a knowing smirk as the solar eclipse is transiting, knowing full well that totality will pass due to their insider knowledge, putting a halt on the sacrificial killing for the day while the little people run around in circles below. The same political manipulation is going on - everyone gets what they want and the 'majority' are none the wiser. Gibson says as much in the running commentary.

I saw the movie once, I didn't like it very much. But I really liked the tracks. I recommend everyone to listen to them

'Dramatic Hightlights' third of the 'Julius Caesar' albums, with Gielgud, Brando and Mason is my favorite one. I recommend everyone to listen to it. I also want to add that this album inspired me to read https://gradesfixer.com/free-essay-examples/julius-caesar/ because I wanted to know more about Julius Caesar himself. There you can read information about his achievements, biography and even death. It helped me prepare for writing a college job. I also took advantage of checking my work with a professional writer to make sure everything was written well.
