Post-War Film Music


Next week, we will screen Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic Psycho (1960). Alongside the film, I’m asking you to read Ross Fenimore’s essay on the use of music, sound, and voice in that film. Fenimore is a visiting assistant professor of music at Davidson College and he is an expert in all things Madonna.

In addition to Psycho, we will be discussing a few scenes from The Man With the Golden Arm (1955), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). For those of you looking for a way to discuss The Man With the Golden Arm in your mid-term papers, it is available on Prime Instant.
