Day 28: [Noir] Movie with the Best Soundtrack

Another tough call. I can name the noir with the worst soundtrack easily (I Wake Up Screaming), and I love the work of Miklos Rozsa and Franz Waxman, among others who scored for noir. But the work that sticks with me always is Bernard Hermann’s Vertigo soundtrack. If you don’t think of Vertigo as noir, well, at least the soundtrack surely is. (Brilliant and almost as unforgettable as Akira Ifukube’s original Godzilla score, another favorite of mine.)
