Gentlemen, I told you I did not know what kind of song I wanted. Well, that's the kind of song I want
25 October 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the documentary on the DVD of The Man Who Knew Too Much. It consists of interviews(only with the crew, none of the stars, unfortunately), clips of the film and stills from the making of it. They talk about the original(I haven't watched it, I can't say if it's as good as the other one... from hearing about it in this, I would say that it isn't, though) that the 50's version is a remake of(and Hitchcock(R.I.P.) did both, at first loving the 30's one, but eventually coming to feel like the later one is the more professionally done one) and make some comparisons between the two, they go into the music, and in that area, Bernard Hermann's lack of an ego in deciding to use the orchestral piece from the old one for a pivotal scene, his clever and prominently featured cameo and the hint of later pieces(such as what would be heard in Vertigo!) by him in this. This is an informational enough 34 minutes, if it could be more interesting and compelling. Maybe it's the lack of Stewart or Day, the sparseness of unforgettable anecdotes and Alfred's sardonic wit. There is disturbing content in this, and it spoils the movie itself. I recommend this to big fans of the Master of Suspense. 6/10
