Jerry Goldsmith

For over four decades, Jerry Goldsmith ranked among the film and television industry's most highly-regarded and prolific composers; at the peak of his activity during the 1960s, he was estimated to have scored an average of about six films annually. Born in Los Angeles on February 10, 1929, Goldsmith studied music at the University of South Carolina, and after accepting a job as an office clerk at CBS television later graduated to the network's music department in 1950. There he composed themes for series including Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, Have Gun Will Travel, The Twilight Zone and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. before turning to film in 1957, debuting with the score to Black Patch. Under the tutelage of the great Alfred Newman, Goldsmith rose to prominence with 1962's Lonely Are the Brave, and subsequently emerged as one of Hollywood's most prolific composers. Among his credits were such diverse offerings as Patton, Planet of the Apes, Seconds, Chinatown, Poltergeist and Rambo: First Blood Part II; while nominated for over a dozen Academy Awards, Goldsmith won only one, for 1976's The Omen. Additionally, he regularly toured concert halls, performing his music and conducting the likes of the San Diego Symphony and Britain's Royal Philharmonic. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

beam me up! warp nine engage
Great Composer! One of Hollywood's Very Best!
Good music like star treck but John Williams and star wars bury both of them! ha!
How did Hoosiers get left off this list.
Total Recall 1990 was game changer for the sound of all film music. They have been emulating this score since then.
Who's the wild man now?!!
One of my all time favorite movie theme songs - Rudy
oh yeah!!! star trek!!!!!!
so fake @homeworkhat e r 2 4 7
The Twilight Zone was true master piece
Tutelage of the great Alfred E. Newman from Mad Magazine
Was? That little word prompted me to search and find that the master of so many musical themes had died, back in 2004. Rest in peace, Mr. Goldsmith.
Nice stuff, but somehow the old masters like Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, & Tchaikovsky rule. All you fans here, do you ever listen to the oldies but goodies like Schubert, Chopin, even Leonard Bernstein? (Westside Story based on guess what? Romeo + Juliet! ) How about Andrew L. Weber (Cats and Fantom of the Opera). That spaghetti western cat that did The Good, Bad, and Ugly, Ennio C. Some Italian name, awesome haunting melodies!

john.alexand e r 4 , this is billed correctly. This IS the theme from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. A slightly different version is used in the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series.
blakecolling
Definitely needs his work from Mulan on here.
The number billed here as the theme to Star Trek 1 (The Motion Picture) is, in fact, that for Star Trek: The Next Generation.. .

John Williams, upon Jerry's passing, said We used to call him Gorgeous, because his music had a chameleon-li k e quality - perfectly fit the mood of the movie, and you really couldn't tell who wrote it - no characterist i c / i d e n t i f y i n g chords or instrumentat i o n (I love them, but I can spot a Williams or Zimmer score within a measure!).
Perry Mason? Seriously? Awesome
jerry goldsmith and john willams are the best
Aliens soundtrack, wish that was here.
lillulu77
My favorite musical score of Mr. Goldsmith was A Patch of Blue.
terriestar
As a Goldsmith follower.... y o u will be amazed finding his diversity and just how many films, shows and other venues he has been involved in..If you know his music style. You can find it everywhere.. T
it is nice music
ljburby5
the forbidden zone and star trek!
aquafrogger
RUDY!!!!! Best soundtrack of all time probably.
jr374nu
Psycho 2? the music is beautiful
put the soundtrack from medicene man on
When origianlly made Maestro Goldsmith did the score for "Legend," and the studio forced Ridley Scott to dump it in favor of Tangerine Dream; in all European releases, however, it had Goldsmith's original...I have this OST on LP, ande it is very rare to hear it in this country, indeed.
What an amazing talent!
cowgrl6692
put the soundtrack for rudy on
chrisp_68
Can you add the soundtrack from Patton?
snoppdoog
STAR TREK!
cheezy idiotic movie ever
Jerry Goldsmith's "The Forbidden Zone" from Planet Of The Apes served as a nexus for me to begin to listen to all his many works. They broke the mold when Jerry Goldsmith was created.
Goldsmith studied music at the University of Southern California, not the University of South Carolina. Christ, will you f**king people at Pandora pay attention!
I would love to see the sound track to Rudy on here!
Ahh please fix this! Jerry Goldsmith is NOT Tangerine Dream
Jerry Goldsmith also did Star Trek First dont forget about Star Trek.
craft6269
Wrong one, Jerry Goldsmith did the soundtracks for Patton.
Good point. I like Tangerine Dream too, but they are certainly not on the same level as Jerry Goldsmith.
