This film score handbook provides a detailed analysis of Alex North's astounding score for Elia Kazan's 1951 adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire. Beginning with a review of North's musical training and film scoring techniques, the book then uses approaches from both musicology and film studies to present a comprehensive exploration of the film's (self-)censorship and its impact on North's music, most notably in the film's infamous staircase scene.
