The man's musical scores in numerous film (and radio) is phenomenal. His style certainly stands out from among other musicians.
I had seached for music to use at a convention earlier this year, and ran into a piece I had heard on "Kill Bill", but really wasn't aware it was his music since he had passed away before this movie. It came from a British thrilller film, starring Hayley Mills, "Twisted Nerve".
It's always kinda fun to find his work in other things he is famous for, such as-
Seventh Voyage of Sinbad
Jason and the Argonauts
The Day the Earth Stood Still
The Man Who Knew too Much
-and so much more, including chilling music for early radio's "Suspense".
I know I haven't mentioned other scores he had done, so please chime in and add to the list.

I know he did Kane and some other Welles stuff as well as Vertigo and North by Northwest for Hitchcock, but didn't Herrmann also write The Twilight Zone intro?

Yes he did.
One on the greatest if not the greatest film composers
