'''Miklós Rózsa''' was born in Budapest on April 18, 1907. Though his father wanted him to study chemistry, Rózsa's musical talents led him to the Conservatory in Leipzig, where he studied with such people as Hermann Grabner. Eventually he made his way to Paris, where he tried to make a living composing music, but found that he had to author a few popular tunes under the pseudonym Nic Tomay just to keep food on the table.

Rózsa's scoring was marked by five distinct "periods": The first, Rózsa called the "oriental" period, with films featuring exotic locations (e.g. ''Film/TheThiefOfBagdad'', ''The Four Feathers'', and ''The Jungle Book''); the second featured his "psychological" portraits (e.g., ''Lost Weekend'', ''The Red House'', and the Oscar-winning score for ''Film/{{Spellbound}}''); the third was his "film noir" period (e.g., ''Film/DoubleIndemnity'' and his Oscar-winning score for ''A Double Life''); the fourth was his Historico-Biblical Period (e.g., ''Madame Bovary'', ''QuoVadis'', ''Film/ElCid'', ''Lust for Life'' (a BioPic of Vincent van Gogh), and his Oscar-winning score for ''Film/BenHur''); and the fifth was his sci-fi phase (e.g., ''The Power'' (notable for its use of the Hungarian cembalo) and ''Time After Time'').

When Rózsa turned 80, he was given a touching tribute by colleagues and friends; even world leaders such as Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and the Pope sent him congratulations. Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley dubbed the composer's birthday, April 18, 1987, "Miklós Rózsa Day."
