AllMusic Review by

The Turner Classic Movies network has been keeping Hollywood's golden age alive for 20 years with their presentations of classic films, and to mark that anniversary, Sony Masterworks and TCM have joined forces to present a two-CD collection of movie themes, soundtrack songs, and highlights from iconic film scores, including music by Bernard Herrmann, Max Steiner, Maurice Jarre, Elmer Bernstein, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Henry Mancini, Ennio Morricone, and John Williams. Most of these are not the original film versions, but that doesn't mute the power, familiarity, or liminal majesty of these musical classics.
