This video contains both Bernard Herrmann's cue and Addison's Cue for The Killing Scene. It took me a long time to put the music and the scenes together. I am posting this video for non profit and research purposes only.
With me, I easily pick Bernard Herrmann's cue for The Killing scene. This is because I can feel every moment of the struggle (movements, struggling of Paul Newman for survival, the pain of Gromek, and the panicking of farmer's wife) in the fight. Once the solution (oven) is found, the music ends. I like Bernard Herrmann's cue for this scene way better than Addison's cue and the released version with no music.
With Addison's cue, I think his cue was good in generalizing the struggle in the scene. Aside from that, I thought his cue was just ok.
What about you? Do you like the film with no music? or Do you like this scene with Bernard Herrmann's cue? or Do you like Addison's cue for this scene?
