Alfred Hitchcock's soundtracks on Vinyl LP
I was watching North by Northwest the other day and was struck by the soundtrack. The music in Alfred Hitchcock's movies plays a key role. Can you imagine the Psycho shower scene without the intense sound that is now virtually synonymous with stabbing?
Speaking of Psycho you may be interested in the ProfTalks symposium on April 25th being held in the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon that includes Professor Annette Insdorf's talk "Master of Suspense: The Artistry of Alfred Hitchcock" focusing on Psycho.
Did you know the Arts Department, 5th floor of the Toronto Reference Library has 15,000 LP records including several of his soundtracks with period vintage psychedelic covers (and we have 2 record players you can use too!).
