Arthur Kleiner Collection

The Kleiner Collection contains music scores, both printed and manuscripts, for nearly 700 silent films. Some of the scores are Kleiner’s own compositions, adaptations, or arrangements; the majority are by other composers. Most of the scores are for English-language films, but a significant number are for German, French, or Swedish-language films. The collection also includes slides, correspondence, programs, contracts, books, reel and cassette tapes, and other archival material.
