Can't choose one contemporary favorite.  "Out of Africa," "Schindler's List," "Scent of a Woman," are wonderful - but there are so many more.

Of the so-called "Golden Age" composers in Hollywood - mostly escapees from the Nazi era - the towering master is Erich Wolfgang Korngold.  His scores never have been equaled, in my opinion.

For a sample of some of Korngold's film music try this marvelous disc.  Especially recommended is the excerpt from "Of Human Bondage."
