4. Bernstein: Fancy Free (1944)
Bernstein's ballet score is set in a New York City bar and the street outside during wartime. It follows the amorous exploits of three sailors visiting the city on shore leave. A portion of Bernstein’s music was also put to use in the opening scenes of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller, ‘Rear Window’.
