ALFRED HITCHCOCK'S MOVIE... 4XLP
This 4 album set includes the original mono soundtrack to Hitchcock's The Wrong Man (1956), and the original stereo soundtracks to Vertigo (1958) and North by Northwest (1959) by Bernard Herrmann, one of the greatest film composers in the history of cinema. Besides working with Hitchcock, he wrote the scores to several other classics: Citizen Kane, Taxi Driver, and Cape Fear, to name a few. Not to mention working with Orson Welles back in the days of radio, and even directing the music to the ill-fated War of the Worlds broadcast in 1938. However, unlike most other musical directors, Herrmann insisted on complete creative control over his music and once said, "I have the final say, or I don't do the music". Herrmann also said that Hitchcock would in fact astonishingly shorten or lengthen the scenes to fit his music. Do not miss these classic soundtracks to some of Hitchcock's best films.
