There are a couple of tight close-ups like that one, in Hitch's great movie, and what I enjoy is Herrmann's score that goes along with those scenes.

So Janet Leigh is just leaving one her 'near captures', right?

And the score goes BUMP...BUMP...BUMP-BUMP...BUMP-bump-BUMP-bump-BUMP-bump-BUMP-bump. Best ever!

I always figured it was simulating her heartbeat, and while ole' Janet looks as cool as a cucumber as she drives away, at most a knitted brow or bite of the lip, the score is actually telling the audience that the poor lady's nearly had a coronary! (Subtext alert... she's gonna have said coronary in about 20 minutes' of screentime...)

Classic.

Why don't you just tell me the name of the movie you want to see? - Kramer voice.

Even after all these years, YouTube continues to amaze me. Search for it, and you find it almost right away:

Janet Leigh tries to skip town with stolen money, but her boss walks right in front of her car at a red light

And listen to the music, at 0:21!

I did watch this flick again last night (along with the 'Making of' doc, it's great!) and I believe this music snippet occurs three times, in three separate car scenes.

See? A lesson for writers and directors: Just because it's a boring driving scene doesn't mean it can't have an impact.
