Song of the Day #1907

Song of the Day: North by Northwest (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by Bernard Herrmann, is one of the highlights to this 1959 film, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, and James Mason. I know it’s a tough call, but this remains my all-time favorite among Hitchcock films, with a wonderful soundtrack by a man who scored seven of those films (while also being credited as sound consultant to “The Birds“). Today begins a five-day mini-Herrmann tribute within my Film Music February Festival.
