  • PRESENTATION COPY FROM HITCHCOCK TO HERRMANN, inscribed with the director's trademark self-caricature "For Benny, with my fondest wishes. Hitch". A pencilled instruction ("Reproduce opposite page in 'Portrait of Hitch' score") indicates that this was the copy used to illustrate the published score of Herrmann's Portrait of Hitch, a piece originally written for The Trouble with Harry.
