The Sea Wolf & Kings Row

The Sea Wolf
(Michael Curtiz, 1941, USA, 100 minutes)
Kings Row
(Sam Wood, 1942, USA, 127 minutes)
Both of these Warner Brothers classics—the richly atmospheric Jack London adaptation The Sea Wolf and the midwestern romance Kings Row—feature iconic Korngold scores. Taken together, they demonstrate the range of his achievement in the 1940s.
