HATFUL OF RAIN, the Michael V. Gazzo play made into a movie, on TCM tonight at 10:00. "A Hatful of Rain is a 1957 dramatic film. The movie was a rarity for its time, in its frank depiction of the effects of morphine addiction. It is a medically and sociologically accurate account of the effects of morphine on an addict and his family. It stars Eva Marie Saint, Don Murray, Anthony Franciosa, Lloyd Nolan, and Henry Silva. The movie was adapted by Michael V. Gazzo, Alfred Hayes, and Carl Foreman from the play by Gazzo. Foreman was blacklisted at the time of the film's release. The Writers Guild of America added his name to the film's credits in 1998, 14 years after his death. It was directed by Fred Zinnemann and features a strong musical score by Bernard Herrmann. Herrmann was asked by Fox to rescore his prelude for the film as the original was considered "too terrifying". Franciosa was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role."
Replace Kim Novak and "Vertigo" still works; replace Bernard Herrmann and it's a far worse movie.
DVR Pick of the Day—Fox Movie Channel, 8:40am-10am, John Brahm's fantastic Hangover Square, a horror thriller of unusual dramatic intensity, told inventively and vividly both visually and with particular emphasis on sound. Like Frankenstein, it manages to evoke sympathy for its murdering monster, a tormented composer. Brahm gets a lot of the credit, as do Bernard Herrmann's extraordinary score and Joseph La Shelle's evocative cinematography, but equally important is Laird Cregar's soulful performance, which in lesser hands would have been pure hokum. All three of the film's leads met with tragic ends: Cregar suffered a heart attack after a desperate crash diet that he hoped would make him a viable leading man; George Sanders famously took his own life; and Linda Darnell, a voluptuous beauty who appeared in films by Preston Sturges, Joseph Mankiewicz, and John Ford, perished in a fire, a fate eerily foreshadowed by a truly horrific scene in Hangover Square. If you don't know this one, jump on it—it's . ...
With the 2014 Academy Awards airing tomorrow night, it is a race to the finish for all 5 'Best Original Score' nominees: veteran John Williams (The Book Thief), newcomers Steven Price (Gravity), William Butler/Owen Pallett (Spike Jonze's Her) and serial previous contenders who have yet to win: Thomas Newman ( Saving Mr. Banks) and Alexandre Desplat (Philomena). With the Hans Zimmer sound dominating big budget spectacles (GRAVITY) and the alternative music scene deeply entrenched into the indie film market (HER), a win for either THE BOOK THIEF, PHILOMENA or SAVING MR. BANKS would bring visibility to a "classic" approach that is progressively disappearing from the Hollywood scene. While the baby boomers had the chance of growing up alongside Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Elmer Bernstein, Alex North and Bernard Herrmann (who themselves reflected their previous influences such as Erich Wolfgang Korngold or the Impressionists like Ravel and Debussy), why not afford Generations X/Y a comparable luxury?

LIKE SCHINDLER, I'M ALWAYS MAKING LISTS Perfect Autumn Albums Daylight's getting scarcer, trees are dropping their raiment, and the wind is just starting to hint at the chill to come. The perfect companion to your hat and jacket? An elegiac soundtrack. Here are five suggestions from our ears to yours. 1. Elliott Smith "XO" (Dreamworks Records, 1998)--the descending acoustic guitar figure that opens "Sweet Adeline" and the album is the audio equivalent of watching leaves fall off trees. 2. The Jesus & Mary Chain "Stoned & Dethroned" (Blanco Y *** 1994)--trading howling feedback for a relatively traditional format based around strummed acoustics, the JMC's fifth (and last decent) album finds them channeling pensive Rolling Stones cuts when they're not drafting in Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval for a Nancy & Lee-style duet. 3.

It's a and inspired day on with Bernard Herrmann penned scores. First up: "Psycho" soundtrack.
Review by Ted Mills You couldn't do much better for a soundtrack to David Cronenberg's adaptation of William S. Burroughs' beat classic than have Ornette Coleman team up with Howard Shore, a film composer who keeps within the strictures of classic film score ideals and colorations, but explores them with the intelligence of Bernard Herrmann. Coleman's free jazz complements the schizophrenia of the film and pays homage to the generation that preceded (and gave birth to) him, while Shore maintains the melancholic dread that powers most Cronenberg films. Like the film -- where the Algiers of the story might only be Bill Lee's imagination -- Shore uses Arabian elements sparingly, and in the context of the cool New York sound. Wondrous strange.
Raven sighs as she sits there in her little spot looking out the window as the moon shined up brightly in the sky. Thinking of many things at the moment, her ears lowered as she pulls off her sealed eyepatch, eventually whistling Twisted Nerve by Bernard Herrmann while she lightly rubbed the eye that was covered. she soon looked at the moon with her indifferent hues as they glowed darkly, eventually twirling her fingers as she whistled on, in her lap, she pets a small little puppy that had a black furr coat, and was sound asleep despite her whistling.

Listening to Bernard Herrmann's wonderfully over the top score to Brian De Palma's Obsession whilst literally drawing curtains (yes more)
Last minute preparations for todays string session...we will be mainly raising the ghost of Bernard herrmann
After one week seeing PSYCHO Bernard Herrmann's score still haunts my mind.
Kudos to whoever decided to name drop composer Bernard Herrmann.
Sitting on a rooftop she whistled out a tune as she looked at the dark sky and grinned behind her docs mask. Whistling out, she kicked her legs out as she sits there relax in the dark night while whistling Twisted Nerve by Bernard Herrmann.
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH Hitchcock`s remake is quite good--James Stewart and Doris Day are a believable, imperfect couple, and the story moves along. But the whole thing is really an excuse for the Royal Albert Hall sequence. Day sees the assassin and the target, but can`t say or do anything without risking her son`s life. As `The Storm Clouds` cantata is performed [conducted by Bernard Herrmann], Stewart frantically tries to get to the shooter, until Day does the only thing she can--she screams. [An ironic response from a singer, whose singing fits into the resolution of the plot.] This sequence should be taught at film schools to show how to build suspense. I hate that damned `Que Sera Sera` though.
As Adelaide indulges in screen worshiping at the Adelaide Film Festival Zephyr Quartet pays homage to some of the star composers of film music in 'Beyond The Screen' - an intimate concert of rarely performed concert works for string quartet by Nino Rota, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Bernard Herrmann and the world premiere of 'Fragments' by Alies Sluiter - with Emily Tulloch, Belinda Gehlert and Jason Peter Thomas.
I can imagine. Bernard Herrmann was the same.
The main theme from Bernard Herrmann's music for The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Beguilingly beautiful.
Lhota should have just gone ahead and used the Bernard Herrmann 'Taxi Driver' theme as the soundtrack here:
"Psycho (Original Movie Soundtrack)" by Bernard Herrmann on Great motion picture soundtrack.
One of the interesting things about PSYCHO is how it starts out as a crime thriller without ANY foreshadowing of anything else. When Janet Leigh`s character is killed, she isn`t just stabbed, she`s ERADICATED from the movie--Bernard Herrmann`s score is like an aural wiping-away. The whole movie is unbalanced from that point on; it takes 27 minutes to reach the Bates Motel, and it`s 30 minutes from Martin Balsam getting it on the stairs to the end, where we focus on Vera Miles and John Gavin--it`s like once Marion Crane is gone, the movie can`t decide whose story to follow. Of course, all along from minute 27 on, it`s following Norman`s story.
Been doing that a lot lately, Bernard Herrmann a fave. Need to do 'jobs' then I can sit and make a score for an imaginary film.

Why I love horror films (From my list of flicks to watch up to Halloween): "a highly unorthodox tale about the seductiveness of the idea of immortality. Kindly antiques dealer Jesús Gris happens upon an ancient golden device in the shape of a scarab, and soon finds himself the possessor and victim of its sinister, addictive powers" -Cronos "After a young theology student flees a hit-and-run accident, he is plagued by both his own guilt-ridden conscience and a mysterious, diabolical doppelgänger. But all possible escape routes lead straight to *** literally. In the gloriously gory final third of the film, Nakagawa offers up his vision of the underworld in a tour de force of torture and degradation." -Jigoku "Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, it tells the tale of a twelve-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro expertly combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in ...
