    I read somewhere that the score to North By Northwest fell apart and as a result, some parts of the score on the DVD have defects.
    Is there some?

    Hmmmmm. Seems like I heard something to that effect several years ago, before DVD was even a household word. The Rhino CD release of the original score was certainly damaged in spots, seemingly unrepairable. But by comparison, the isolated score track on the DVD sounds absolutely glorious. I'm not sure if they used different sources for the CD and the DVD, or perhaps audio restoration technology has advanced by leaps and bounds since the CD release. I dunno... but if you're holding back on buying the DVD for this reason, hold back no further. You won't be disappointed!
