I have always thought that Bernard Herrmann's score for The Ghost and Mrs Muir (1947) was particularly well suited to the plot.



A lot of people probably didn't notice, but the score for the 2005 action/adventure Mr. &
Mrs. Smith
with Brangelina, is absolutely flawless.



You can't win an argument just by being right!
