Did Herrmann actually finish composing the score for this film, or was he still writing it at the point where he was fired?

He finished composing it and was in the middle of recording it when Hitchcock fired him.

A Hitchcock compilation CD, “Alfred Hitchcock presents... Signatures in Suspense,” with a limited release, had 3 cues from TORN CURTAIN, conducted by Herrmann: “Prelude,” “The Ship, and “The Radiogram,” all listed as “previously unreleased.” The label was Hip.O Records a Universal Music Company. Which makes these seem like Herrmann’s original recordings.

2 “previously unreleased” cues from MARNIE are also included, as well as one from Waxman’s REAR WINDOW.

Fold-out package. Interesting release.

I think I remember reading he had recorded about twenty-one minutes.

The blu-ray, and I assume the DVD, has a supplement with 15 minutes of scenes matched to Herrmann's score. Including the murder scene.
