    Wow, that's really sad to hear. He was an awesome film score composer!

    This is interesting. It shows that I'm at a party I shouldn't be attending. I've never heard of him.

    PS I'm sorry to hear of anyone dying though.

    You never heard of Jerry Goldsmith!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    I guess he wasn't huge like Elfman or Williams. He did a lot of the Star Trek movies. I loved The Mummy, it was a great score. Thanks for all the great music Jerry.

    I love the fact that he was working on some new films! I think it's one of the coolest facts that composers can work on their deathbeds. Do composers ever truly retire?

    Maybe not, but definitely one of the elite, and certainly in the top ten of all time. From the Film Music News Bulletin:

    "Goldsmith's long and distinguished career included a best original score Academy Award for the 1976 movie "The Omen." He also received several Academy Award nominations for best original score, including "Mulan," "L.A. Confidential," "Hoosiers," "Poltergeist," "Star Trek: The Motion Picture," "Chinatown," "Patton" and "Planet of the Apes." "

    That list alone is a monster resume. He'll be sorely missed.

    That is truly sad news! Goldsmith was definitely one of the greats, and got some great films to score. If you've never seen "Patton", I'd suggest renting or buying it. The score will stay in your mind for years...

    I'm not really too familar with his work, but I know that he was a great composer, and I know he'll be missed.

    Mr. Goldsmith will be deeply missed. What an impact he had on movies!
    Still, I rather think of him as on his way home.

    Re: Jerry Goldsmith has passed away

    Film scores are what got me interested in the music I love today. I am thankful Mr. Goldsmith was able to provide such a wealth of music during the years of his carreer, and I'm certain his music will live on for many years to come.
