French film composer Georges Delerue studied his craft under prestigious movie musician Darius Milhaud.

In his native France, Delerue wrote music for such highly regarded New Wave films as Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959), Shoot the Piano Player (1960) and Jules et Jim (1961). Equally busy in England and the U.S., DelerueRead more worked on A Man for All Seasons (1966), Anne of a Thousand Days (1969), Day of the Dolphin (1973), A Little Romance (1979), Platoon (1986) and Steel Magnolias (1989).
