3. Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann
Herrmann composed the scores for some of Hitchcock's biggest films, including The Trouble with Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Vertigo , North by Northwest and Psycho. He also served as ‘sound consultant’ on The Birds which does not use music, but electronic bird noises. Thieir relationship came to an abrupt end when they disagreed over the score for Torn Curtain.
