.....Waxman was just plain talented. This was a Hitchcock movie, and I'm not sure if he ever used Waxman again. Maybe manderly will chime in here.....
Well, of course there was a final, little-known, film collaboration between Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. Waxman that didn't cause much public interest---what was it now?---REAR WINDOW, or something like that! (Which, by the way, could also use a CD release although it's a slim score with a lot of source material and might have to be paired with something else.)
Incidentally, I'd guess Waxman's participation in REBECCA and THE PARADINE CASE were more attributable to David O. Selznick's production overseeing than Hitchcock's choices.
Have you noticed that some of the REAR WINDOW source music is from ELEPHANT WALK? During one scene the main theme from EW has been given lyrics and is sung by a woman.
