Song of the Day #2110

Song of the Day: Man Hunt (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link] was composed by Alfred Newman for this 1941 Fritz Lang-directed war thriller, one of his four explicitly anti-Nazi films (the others being “Ministry of Fear“, “Hangmen Also Die!“, and “Cloak and Dagger“). The film stars Walter Pidgeon, Joan Bennett, George Sanders, and Roddy McDowell in his first Hollywood role (at the age of 13). David Buttolph has been credited with having assisted Newman in the dazzling number of films that he scored in 1941. And this suspenseful film is one of them. Over his lifetime, Newman scored over 200 motion pictures.
