A dramatic score by Herrmann – written for this 1970 film about a key battle in WWII. Herrmann directs the London Philharmonic, and the whole thing's very action-packed – less edgey than some of Bernard's more famous scores, but strongly voiced nonetheless. Titles include "Prelude", "The Retreat", "Chetnik's March", "Separation", "Farewell", "Death Of Danica", and "Turning Point". LP, Vinyl record album

Herrmann's original score to the film is pretty compelling – almost in the mode of some of his work for Hitchcock – and it's conducted here by Herrmann himself and by Dave Blume. The album's got 2 especially noteworthy tracks – "Diary Of A Taxi Driver", which features a cool monologue by Robert DeNiro, and "Theme From Taxi Driver", which features alto sax work by Tom Scott. Other titles include "Betsy In A White Dress", "Sport & Iris", "The .44 Magnum Is A Monster", and "God's Lonely Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Bernard Herrman's classic spooky score to this great Hitchcock thriller. The music is often very intense, to perfectly suit the film's tone – and has that great jagged edge that Herrman brought to some of his other best soundtrack scoring. The tracks are long, and have a pretty edgy sound for the most part – but not without some more lush and romantic movements. An all time classic! Titles include "Prelude & Rooftop", "The Beach", "The Nightmare & Dawn", "The Necklace, The Return & Finale", "Goodnight & The Park", "Carlotta's Portrait", "Scene D'Amour" and more.
