Documentary is a fine introduction to Cinema's greatest composer.
This documentary is a good introduction to the genius that was Bernard Herrmann. It is a good overview of his turbulent personality as well as providing brief examples of his music. More of the film should have dealt with his brilliant work with Hitchcock on such notable films as "Vertigo" and "Psycho". And the production quality is rather sub-par. Still, this is a must see for people interested in film music and a good foundation for establishing Bernard Herrmann as one of this centuries greatest composers.
