This documentary chronicles the life and work of famed film composer Bernard Herrmann. Herrmann, who died in 1976, scored many sci-fi and fantasy movies and several Alfred Hitchcock films. Included are clips from many of the films he composed for and interviews with actors and composers he worked with, including James Stewart, David Raksin and Elmer Bernstein. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi
Bernard Herrmann explores the work of a composer who created music for over 50 films and takes audiences behind the scenes in Hollywood to the mixing rooms and dubbing stages where music is put to picture. 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.
