Help

The director of The Artist has defended using music from Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo in his Oscar-tipped film after a complaint from Vertigo star Kim Novak.

The actress took out a full-page ad in Monday's edition of trade paper Variety, to say a "rape" had been committed with the use of Bernard Herrmann's score in the film.

Miss Novak told Radio 4's PM programme she was "very emotionally disturbed" by the use of Bernard Herrmann's score in the film.
