    Personal quotes
    "If our music survives, which I have no doubt it will, then it will be because it is good."

    (On the 'Planet of the Apes' commentary track, he explains why he didn't score the final scene) "Charlton Heston was a bit over the top by himself, and didn't need any score to accompany him."

    {lecturing film school students about writing music for a scene] "If you are scoring a scene for a man on a horse galloping away - you don't score the gallop but you score the fear of the rider."

    Mini biography
    Born February 1929, Jerry Goldsmith studied piano with Jacob Gimpel and composition, theory and counterpoint with Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. He also attended classes in film composition given by 'Miklos Rozsa' at the Univeristy of Southern California. In 1950, he was employed as a clerk typist in the music department at CBS. Here he was given his first embryonic assignments as a composer for radio shows such as 'Romance' and 'CBS Radio Workshop'. He wrote one score a week for these shows which were performed live on transmission. He stayed with CBS until 1960, having already scored "The Twilight Zone" (1959). He was hired by Revue Studios to score their "Thriller" (1960) series. It was here that he met the influential film composer Alfred Newman who hired Goldsmith to score the film Lonely Are the Brave (1962), his first major feature film score. An experimentalist, Goldsmith constantly pushed forward the bounds of film music: Planet of the Apes (1968) included horns blown without mouthpieces and a bass clarinetist fingering the notes but not blowing. He is unafraid to use the wide variety of electronic sounds and instruments which are now available, although he does not use them for their own sake.

    He rose rapidly to the top of his profession in the early to mid-sixties, with scores such as Freud (1962), A Patch of Blue (1965) & The Sand Pebbles (1966). In fact, he received Oscar nominations for all three and another in the sixties for Planet of the Apes (1968). From then onwards his career and reputation was secure and he scored an astonishing variety of films during the next 30 years or so, from Patton (1970) to Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) and from Chinatown (1974) to The Boys from Brazil (1978).

    He received 17 Oscar nominations but won only once, for The Omen (1976) in 1977. He enjoyed giving concerts of his music and performed all over the world, notably in London, where he built up a strong relationship with The London Symphony Orchestra.

    He died in July of 2004 after a long battle with cancer.
    IMDb mini-biography by Peter J Corrigan

    from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:
    If you have been a regular moviegoer during the past 20 years, chances are that Goldsmith has composed the music for some of your favorite films. He began conducting and composing music for CBS radio and television, and made his first impact on moviegoers in 1962 with his subtle scores for Lonely Are the Brave and Freud. He has since worked virtually nonstop on pictures both big and small, and has experimented with many different musical stylings on such films as Lilies of the Field (1963), A Patch of Blue (1965), Our Man Flint (1966), Planet of the Apes (1968), Patton (1970), Chinatown (1974), Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), Under Fire (1983), Gremlins (1984, the first of many films for director Joe Dante), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Hoosiers (1986), and The Russia House (1990). Goldsmith has been nominated 15 times for Academy Awards and took one home for his frightening score of The Omen (1976). TV buffs remember him for his trendy music for the popular TV series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." Recent credits include Forever Young (1992), Dennis the Menace, Matinee, Rudy and Malice (all 1993).

  • Jerrald King "Jerry" Goldsmith was an American composer and conductor
    most known for his work in film and television scoring.

    He composed scores for such noteworthy films as The Sand Pebbles, Planet of the Apes,
    Patton, Chinatown, The Wind and the Lion, The Omen, The Boys from Brazil, Night Crossing,
    Alien, Poltergeist, The Secret of NIMH, Gremlins, Hoosiers, Total Recall, Basic Instinct,
    Rudy, Air Force One, L.A. Confidential, Mulan, The Mummy, three Rambo films,
    and five Star Trek films
    He was nominated for six Grammy Awards, nine Golden Globe Awards,
    four British Academy Film Awards, and seventeen Academy Awards.
    In 1977, he was awarded an Oscar for The Omen.

    He collaborated with some of film history's most prolific directors, including Robert Wise
    (The Sand Pebbles, Star Trek: The Motion Picture),
    Howard Hawks (Rio Lobo), Otto Preminger (In Harm's Way),
    Joe Dante (The Gremlins Duology, The 'Burbs, Small Soldiers), Roman Polanski (Chinatown),
    Ridley Scott (Alien, Legend), Steven Spielberg (Twilight Zone: The Movie),
    and Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Basic Instinct).

    However, his most notable collaboration was arguably that of with Franklin J. Schaffner,
    for whom Goldsmith scored such films as Planet of the Apes, Patton, Papillon, and The Boys from Brazil.

    Jerry composed for music for 2 of Duke's movies

    Rio Lobo (1970)
    In Harm's Way (1965)

    In In Harm's Way you can see Jerry,
    playing the piano, in the band, whilst they were having
    the dinner-dance by the swimming pool.

    Just take a look at his film credits,
    to see how prolific, this man was!

  • It seems you r link above to a thread about Jerry Goldsmith is not a good one, or at least it didnt work for me.

    Are you going to have a thread for every person who ever had anyting to do with a Duke move? That seems overwhelming to me. Why would ou do that?

    no offense itnended, please dont be offended.


  • Hi clancy,

    Well if the 'Pals in the Saddle' series get's members posting,
    like your good self, who we don't normally hear from,
    then, I think it's achieving it's objective,
    I shall continue!!

    Many of our members are also interested, in the music,
    of Duke's films, and those who composed it.

    The sole purpose, of this forum and 'Movie Reviews'
    is to make the JWMB, the place for all the information.
    Instead of having to go back, on the internet,
    all relevant information, is readily available here.

    If you take a look at the Main Welcome page of this web-site, Page

    Perhaps you think the administrator mis-guided too!!

  • The problem I have with Bernstein is that all his western themes sounds pretty similar . of course it doesn't help that a lot of other composers used his themes and made them kind of a like mass produced product. At least to me, anyway. But if that many people were ripping him off he has to be good. I'll give him another try before I make my final judgment.

  • They all have certain characteristics especially Williams from Spielberg onwards but I take your point. It a loss to cinema that these giants are not with us.

    When was the last mememberable theme you heard that wasnt a pop song?


  • Jerry Goldsmith seemed ubiquitous during his career. It seemed every time one turned around, the movie that was being watched had its music score by him. Trekkers will always remember him for his updated theme for "Star Trek."

    Oh my that is actually quite hard.... I sat here trying to think and I thought I had an answer for you but that theme is 15 years old. There has been no recent themes in the past 5 years that have been memorable.... It wasn't till now that I realized that I have been missing the composers like Dimitri and the like.
