Music from the Film More reached #9 in the UK and - upon re-release in 1973 - #153 in the US.
J.S. Zamecnik and Silent Film Music (958 words)
The musical director at each theater could find the appropriate music and put it in order, or if their library did not include a particular piece, they would substitute something similar in mood.
Being a music director required a huge library with hundreds or thousands of orchestrations, and-- not foreseeing that their careers would vanish with the coming of "talkies" in 1928-- many music directors invested in such libraries.
This method of scoring of films meant that a single score might contain the music of thirty or forty different composers, and it was impossible to give the each composer public credit for the work they had done.
