Rozsa was the master of the noir film score, "brooding" as you say, but also tinged with a determinism and doom that is essential to classic nor. Just as I still reflexivly get goosebumps from the scene in the hotel room in VERTIGO, as the green glow from the hotel sign introduces Stewart to the re-born Madeleine, Rozsa's score for the opening credits in Criss Cross elicits those same reactions from me , as does the opening from Double Indemnity
