The two Arnold “film score manuscripts” which had caught my eye were for the 1952 feature film The Sound Barrier [MS.Mus.b.532] and the 1948 documentary film Report on Steel [MS. Mus.b.533] and were shelved alongside other film scores (some dyeline copies, one original) by, among others, Georges Auric and Aaron Copland.
