North By Northwest is a hyperkinetic espionage film with a charismatic lead, Cary Grant. Sandwiched among Hitchock’s so-called trilogy of voyeurism films (Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), and Psycho (1960), this film was a light-hearted departure from the heavy tone of those films. Bernard Herrmann used an inventive fandango to accompany the various locations; the streets of New York and Chicago, the lobby of the Plaza Hotel, inside Grand Central Station, and Mount Rushmore.

Great to find full film score. I can only hope that this is the start of a series! How about THE EGYPTIAN, VERTIGO, others?

This was my first purchase from Omni Music Publishing. The quality of this publication exceeded my expectations. The binding is sturdy and the print clear and legible. The score is complete; every piece of music from the film is here. A detailed table of contents makes finding a piece within the score easy. Finally, the brief analysis of the score at the beginning is a nice bonus. This is an invaluable resource and a treasured addition to my library. I’m looking forward to collecting more scores from Omni Music Publishing.
Amazing score from the greatest film composer. Would love to have a score of Vertigo!

This is a beautiful engraving of a classic score! The in-depth analysis of each cue is a great resource for anyone who wants to understand the genius of Herrmann’s music. It’s also nice to have the unused cues and sections of cues that were cut out of the film to see the composers original intent. I’d recommend this to anyone who loves film music!

Written in 6 weeks at the kitchen table at his home at Bluebell Avenue , LOS ANGELES, with the kids making a racket and life all around him ! Benny knocked out one of his finest scores . Beautifully presented in a solid binding this is a must have for any lover of film music. Packed with relentless energy and spanish rhythms it carries poor old Roger Thornhill , rudley kidnapped while drinking a Martini at the oak bar , all the way to South Dakota. Ignoring the instructions of the studio to write something “Like Gershwin” Benny used a FANDANGO to dance across the mid west.
