The film was the only Hitchcock production to be scored by John Williams, a rising staff composer at Universal who had recently won an Oscar for Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Williams has stated that Hitchcock wanted choir voices for Madame Blanche to make her seem psychic towards the beginning. Williams also stated that Hitchcock was at the scoring sessions most of the time and would give him suggestions from time to time, one being when Maloney suddenly disappears from Adamson's office, Hitchcock suggested that he stop the music when the camera cuts to the open window, to show the audience that he is gone. Hitchcock then went on to say, "Mr. Williams, Murder can be fun". Williams stated that it was a great privilege, and he had a wonderful working experience with the director.
