Just the GC part:

Why George Clooney, Wes Anderson, and Every Director in Hollywood Adores Alexandre Desplat

On The Monuments Men director George Clooney


“We all feel that George is the heir of Clark Gable, Cary Grant, William Holden, and Dana Andrews,” Desplat says

The composer was familiar with Clooney's old soul after working with the writer-director-actor on Ides of March. And yet, the golden age demands of The Monuments Men ran deeper than the composer could have predicted. “When he offered me the movie that reflected the 50s and 60s—Bernstein’s great scores, Maurice Jarre's great scores—it was exciting,” he says. “He's not trying to make a ‘hip’ war movie about guys trying to find art. He wanted to make something that reflected the 60s. So the score is more narrative than it usually is.”

Clooney's throwback was the full package. He wanted “war music,” or as Desplat describes, “a big symphony orchestra that can go from a solid, masculine, brassy sound to a very intimate, solo flute and harp duet.” Why do classic war movie scores sound the way they do? “They knew the war,” Desplat explains. “They were all symphonists and they had the heritage of military bands—marches and what you'd hear in an army band. And in the 40s, you also had the way big bands played, like Glenn Miller. Brass became very important to the orchestra in these films.” And not just the orchestra—to Clooney, too.
