In 2005, materials from Hungarian composer Miklós Rózsa's personal collection were donated to Syracuse University. Among them were copies of materials used in the recording of the original film score to the 1946 movie, The Killers. In this report, these materials are analyzed and compared to the concert suite that was orchestrated by Patrick Russ and John Kull at the request of the composer. This comparison is augmented by an analysis of each of the score's themes including their cinematic functions and discussion of The Killers' origin as a short story by Ernest Hemingway. A brief historical overview of Rozsa's life and notable works is also included.
