Yes, he was very happy with the matching of the film and music in Obsession (1976). Outside of Herrmann, I loved Michel Legrand's haunting score for Summer of '42, Leighton Lucas (Eve Rhapsody), and some of Franz Waxman's works. But I don't think any composer stayed consistent like Bernard Herrmann.
I know Bernard Herrmann's favorite was his score for The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947). I like Jane Eyre a lot too. But my personal favorite is The Roadbuilder (1971). The Roadbuilder is also known as The Night Digger. The story takes place in England. I didn't like the film. But Herrmann's music was brilliant. unfortunately, some of his cues didn't end up in the film. But I uploaded couple of them on youtube. Here is one. This video contains only the music. So you can watch it even if you haven't seen the film.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6daBijOS_g4
Bernard Herrmann had huge disagreements with Roald Dahl with the structure of the story of The Roadbuilder (1971). The interesting thing is he composed the film exactly opposite to the way the story of the film ends up. Although Herrmann didn't get what he wanted with the story, still the film ended up becoming a box office flop like he predicted.
