Bernard Herrmann in The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) (film still from The Man Who Knew Too Much)

The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)

You know more scores by veteran film composer Bernard Herrmann than you think you do.

As well as Hitchcock movies including Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo and Marnie, Herrmann also contributed scores to Cape Fear, Taxi Driver, and Citizen Kane: in all, IMDb credits Herrmann as composer on 77 films and TV shows.

He only acted in one, though: Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of The Man Who Knew Too Much. He’s the conductor in the climactic concert scene.
