The Dark Knight à la Hitchcock

What happens when you combine a contemporary classic with a famous film score? See for yourself.
I was experimenting with editing movie trailers when I discovered that the opening music from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” happens to work perfectly with the opening “Bank Robbery Sequence” from Christopher Nolan’s 2008 blockbuster “The Dark Knight”. Watch closely, and you will notice that Bernard Herrmann’s music queues line up almost flawlessly with Nolan’s footage. Coincidence? We may never know…
