Where 24 Hour Psycho considered the effect of Hitchcocks thriller if extended to 24 hours and devoid of sound, Feature Film examines Vertigos intense, anxiety-inducing music if separated from its on-screen narrative. This book contains stills from Gordons film of Paris Opera conductor James Conlon rehearsing Bernard Hermanns Vertigo score Focusing on Conlons hands, arms, and facial expressions, the stills provide a fascinating look at the sweeping and subtle gestures that comprise his physical interpretation of Vertigos musical accompaniment. This book also includes a CD of the music actually recorded during the filming, as well as a separate insert containing two essays with background information on the music, the composer, and Gordons film work.
