Musings About Music In Film

The Friday Playlist: Celebrating Jerry's Birthday

goldsmithplaylist Tuesday February 10th would have been Jerry Goldsmith's 86th birthday. To celebrate, we've put together a list of tracks from some of his less obvious movies and shows. We all love Alien and Rambo and The Omen, but Jerry composed so many great scores that we wanted to highlight some of the others, including some from older movies. Did you know he composed the theme from The Waltons? That he scored a Disney animated film?
