Picture Perfect: Non-Herrmann Hitchcock

family_plot_soundtrack_0.jpg

Alfred Hitchcock’s most celebrated musical collaborator was Bernard Herrmann.  Herrmann scored just about every one of Hitch’s films over the span of a decade, enhancing the impact and memorability of such classics as “Vertigo,” “North by Northwest,” and “Psycho.”  But Hitchcock also worked with any number of other notable composers.  We’ll cast some light into Herrmann’s shadow with selections from “Rebecca” (Franz Waxman), “Strangers on a Train” (Dimitri Tiomkin), “Spellbound” (Miklós Rózsa), and “Family Plot” (John Williams).  Herrmann goes on hiatus, this Saturday at 6 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
