About this item
"Music For The Movies: Bernard Herrmann" explores the work of a composer who created music for over 50 films, collaborating with such diverse directors as Orson Welles, Nicholas Ray, and Martin Scorsese. Best remembered for his twelve-year collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock in such classics as Vertigo, North By Northwest ,and the unforgettable Psycho, Herrmann pioneered many fundamental techniques of film scoring in the course of his 35-year career. This takes audiences behind the scenes in Hollywood to the mixing rooms and dubbing stages where music is put to picture. We follow Herrmann's relationship with Hitchcock, examining the bitter breakup of one of the richest collaborations in Hollywood history over the score for the 1966 film "Torn Curtain". We see "Torn Curtain" as it has never been seen before - accompanied by Herrmann's brilliant score. Including clips from: "Citizen Kane", "Sisters", "North By Northwest", "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir", "On Dangerous Ground", "The Man Who Knew Too Much", "Psycho", "Torn Curtain", "The Bride Wore Black", and "Taxi Driver". Featuring interviews with directors Martin Scorsese and Claude Chabrol, composers David Raksin and Elmer Bernstein, film scholar Royal S. Brown, Herrmann's first wife, musicians, film editors and sound mixers, as well as home movies, archival photos and interviews with Herrmann himself.
