As Max Steiner’s biographer, I must point out an error in the above. Bette Davis was a great admirer of Steiner’s film music, praising his work in numerous interviews and private comments. She recorded Steiner’s song “It Can’t Be Wrong,” based on the love theme from his Oscar-winning score for Now, Voyager. She also asked him to score the only film she produced, A Stolen Life. An oft-repeated anecdote - that Davis disliked Steiner’s scoring of Dark Victory’s finale - is apocryphal; Davis praised that score in several interviews. Steven C. Smith, Los Angeles
