|This picture of Herrmann is taken from his cameo in Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much.|
So, I suppose he was not totally overlooked at the Oscars, but I think he should have won enough Oscars to cover every coffee table in his home. I will never understand the thinking of the voters during his career. Herrmann was a giant in the movie industry, and was treated like Tom Thumb by the Oscars. I thought some of my readers might enjoy hearing some of my favorites by Herrmann, so I have posted some really good pieces, most of which are 2-3 minutes long. Wonderful stuff...
