VIDEO & MUSIC: Happy 100th Bernard Herrmann

Film composer Bernard Herrmann would've been 100 years old today. Here are two of my favorite pieces - both of course from crime & suspense films.

The title sequence and theme from North by Northwest (1959)

A portion of the concerto used in the titles sequence from Hangover Square (1945)

  1. Concerto Macabre is a great piece of music. I always get depressed for poor Laird Cregar, however.
