Several films with the word in the title have been made, the most famous of which are perhaps Douglas Sirk 1954 comedy Magnificent Obsession, which was a remake of a 1935 film of the same name, and Brian de Palma 1976 thriller Obsession.3 Notably, the latter film was scored by composer Bernard Herrmann, who wrote music for many films in which the main characters can be said to be obsessed in some way: Citizen Kane,4 Cape Fear, Taxi Driver, and the Hitchcock films Vertigo, North by Northwest, Psycho, and The Birds, where there is no music per se, but rather electronically imitated bird noises. Presumably Herrmann compositional style appealed to directors aiming to achieve an intense psychological impression of obsession, paranoia, or psychopathy. Herrmann made use of electronic violins and bass and treble theremins in some of his scores, which lend them an eerie and unsettling quality.

Be sure to get one of videographer’s to go along with you, to have a lasting DVD (our adult children said it was worth it). After we left there, we went on the River Tubing, then over to the Blue Hole. We felt that the cost was reasonable given the activities that we chose.
