In his lifetime, Rózsa scored about a hundred films. At the height of his career, while he was scoring 4, 5 or 6 films a year, he was also producing works for the concert stage. In 1953 alone, Rózsa did five film scores, including ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', ''Knights of the Round Table'', and ''Young Bess'', while also working on his Violin Concerto (which made its debut three years later). He was among the very first film score composers to present an orchestral overture as a prelude to the actual film. His output stretched from monumental epics, where he emphasized historical accuracy, to the most intimate love themes. He matched the moods set by directors as varied as Creator/AlfredHitchcock, William Wyler, Creator/BillyWilder, Vincente Minnelli and Douglas Sirk.

'''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'').
