Nice article. A bit sentimental, like both movies. wink

Although HOOSIERS and RUDY are far from Goldsmith's best works as a composer, they do have some engaging themes.

Goldsmith's daughter said that her father "wasn't a sports person" despite that he was a known tennis fanatic, and whe he went to U.S.C., one of his fellow wlumni was Frank Gifford (who even worked at the same network that Goldsmith got his start [C.B.S.]).

Maybe she's confused. I think she never recovered from dating James Horner.

Goldsmith's daughter said . . .


"Once they arrived in the arena, Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin spent 10 minutes just working their way through the crowd to the podium as Jerry Goldsmith’s stirring theme from the football movie ‘Rudy’ washed over them, ” Katharine Q. Seelye of the New York Times wrote from an event in Pennsylvania. (Goldsmith’s daughter Carrie, Anspaugh, and Pizzo agree that he wouldn’t have liked that at all.)


That helps me to form an educated guess as to what Goldsmith might have thought of Romney and Ryan blasting "Air Force One" at their campaign events.
