FILE - In this Jan. 14, 2007 file photo, actress Kim Novak poses for photographers upon arriving at a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film 'Vertigo,' in which she starred, at the Egyptian Theater in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles. Novak says she feels violated because music from the Alfred Hitchcock film is used in 'The Artist.' The 78-year-old actress said in a statement released Monday, Jan. 9, 2012 that the filmmakers of the French black-and-white homage to silent film had no reason 'to depend on Bernard Herrmann's score from 'Vertigo' to provide more drama.'
