Lately I've been thinking there's too much wall-to-wall music in films. And too much overwrought music. I can think of at least three films that gain more impact by having no music score at all: 1. The Tall Target (1951) directed by Anthony Mann. 2. The Narrow Margin (1962) directed Richard Fleischer. 3. The Birds (1961) directed by Mr. Hitchcock. Although there is some practical music within the scenes, such as the marching band on the station platform in The Tall Target and the nursey rhyme sung by school children in The Byrds, these are brief moments. There is no soundtrack music to underscore the films, nor do we, as audiences, miss it. In fact most people watch The Birds repeatedly without realizing there's no music. Who can name other films to add to the above list? I know there's more, but I can't think of them at the moment. Movies with no soundtrack music.
