Planet Of The Apes (1968)

Jerry Goldsmith 

Released in:

An Incredible, Haunting Score
filmfactsman (January 19, 2005)
An important Hollywood newcomer who had a tremendous impact on film scoring during the 1960s was American-born Jerry Goldsmith. From the beginning of his career, Goldsmith was willing to take risks and compose against the grain of the movie's story. He did the music for two movies starring Sidney Poitier, "Lillies of the Field" (1963) and "A Patch of Blue" (1965), as well as scoring John Frankenheimer's "Seconds" (1966), a disturbing psychological drama with an excepitionally downbeat ending, to which Goldsmith counterpointed an orderly and serene score. Goldsmith's greatest triumph during the 1960s, however, was his pulsating symphonic score for Franklin J. Schaffner's 1968 science-fiction masterpiece "Planet of the Apes". The score won him wide critical acclaim as well as lavash praise from the movie industry, including an Academy Award nomination. Goldsmith's music was regarded as an absolutely necessary element of the movie and critical to the box-office success of Schaffner's bizarre fantasy.
