After watching this Batman action figure fanfilm, I could swear that I recognized the underscore music from somewhere, but can't put my finger on it. Likely an old noir or mystery film... perhaps from 1939? Unrelated: The song during the dancing sequence is Jack Teagarden's "Stop Kicking My Heart Around" feat. Kitty Kallen (also from 1939) although, that hasn't helped me pin down the film. I really love the musical underscore, and would love to find the original film it accompanied. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm sad that the Hitchcock class is coming to an end as I have enjoyed it immensely and hope TCM will do the following: 1. Have ongoing classes like the Hitchock Class 2. Create a low cost online streaming site like Netflix... so more people including myself can watch TCM daily. I refuse to pay $140 in Long Beach, CA just to get 1 channel TCM. Crazy (I don't watch most of the mindless tv programming that is out there. Concerning the score to Frenzy. There are some interesting facts people might not know: Henry Mancini was originally commissioned to write the score to Frenzy. (The music survives) Here is a link so you watch the alternate version with Henry Mancini's score which I prefer to Ron Goodwin's (Who also wrote a very good score) Mancini's score to me is darker combining organ fugal counterpoint in a very 'stuffy' British style. I love the rich polyphonic writing. I find it interesting to think if Hitchcock was a bit more prolific in the later years if he worked with Mancini.. what kind of duo they would have been artistically? Mancini of course wrote themes like the Pink Panther, Charade, Mr. Lucky etc. I think as a composer he would have worked well with Hitch. Goodwin's score on the other hand works extremely well too with a patriotic hymn feel that is more upbeat and good natured. Hitch went with Goodwin as it created more contrast and dark humor. Ron was a British composer that scored over 100 movies. Alas he is not well known in America.
