In the late-1960s, California State University, Long Beach acquired the documents that make up the CSULB M-G-M Collection. This collection contains manuscript film scores and commercial scores used at M-G-M from the time of its inception until the mid-1960s. Included in the collection are original scores by some of the most prominent film composers of the time, including Bronislau Kaper, Dimitri Tiomkin, Richard Addinsell, and Hugo Friedhofer. Due to the destruction of the M-G-M Studio music library, these scores are all that is left of the music from one of the greatest studios of the Golden Era of Hollywood. This thesis examines the contents of the collection, in particular Friedhofer's use of themes and jazz elements in his score for 1947's Body and Soul.
