Correct response: What is Psycho?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Bernard Herrmann scored a number of Alfred Hitchcock films, including The Man Who Knew Too Much, Vertigo, and The Birds, but his score for Psycho is particularly well known. Hitchcock even said that “33% of the effect of Psycho was due to the music”.
Because the film had a lower budget, Herrmann wrote the score for a string orchestra only, instead of a full symphony. For most of the film, the strings play muted, with the exception of the famous shower scene of the film. Originally, Hitchcock wanted no score for the shower scene, but when he heard the cue Herrmann had provided, he recanted on his earlier suggestion.
Since the release of Psycho, there have been symphonies that have taken a print of the film with the soundtrack removed and performed the soundtrack live.
