SOUNDTRACKOBIT: The death has been announced of Jerry Goldsmith, screen composer. Goldsmith won an Oscar for his score for The Omen and was nominated for the music on the soundtrack of John Houston's Freud, but also worked extensively in TV. Influenced by Milkos Rosza's University of Southern California classes in film composition, Goldsmith joined CBS in 1950 to write for radio shows, before moving into television. Amongst his themes were The Twilight Zone, The Man from UNCLE, Planet of the Apes and The Waltons. Fans suggest his masterpiece was the theme for the first Star Trek film. Goldsmith was 75.
