Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

Of course, Psycho was a great movie too

Not least because of its genius-level musical score by Bernard Herrmann. But the instrumentation throughout was strings only - no trombones. I believe I read an interview with Herrmann where he mentioned that he consciously restricted himself to string sonorities (no wind or brass colorings) - it was meant as a sonic parallel to the use of black-and-white in the film itself.

Anyway, yes, a truly great film!
