Ernest Gold
On the Beach/The Secret of Santa Vittoria

Ernest Gold (1921-1999) was born in Vienna and moved to the U.S. in 1938 to escape Hitler. He orchestrated for George Antheil and scored dozens of B-movies in the 1940s and '50s, before his score for On the Beach led to significant feature scores of the 1960s including Exodus and It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. He was renowned for the high quality and sophistication of his symphonic writing. IMDB

Billy Goldenberg
TV Omnibus: Volume One (1962-1976)

Billy Goldenberg (b. 1936) is one of the legendary names in television scoring of the 1960s and 1970s. He was Steven Spielberg’s composer (Night Gallery, Duel) before the latter’s collaborations with John Williams. Winner of four Emmys, the prolific Goldenberg wrote music for such series as Alias Smith & Jones, The Sixth Sense, Kojak, Rhoda, Columbo and The Name of the Game, as well as such highly rated TV-movies and miniseries as Rage of Angels and Queen of the Stardust Ballroom (the latter of which went on to become the Tony-nominated 1978 musical Ballroom). His movie credits include Play It Again Sam, Up the Sandbox and The Last of Sheila. IMDB

What to say about Jerry Goldsmith (1929-2004), the reason so many of us are soundtrack collectors in the first place? The Los Angeles native knew early on he wanted to write music for the movies, had an extensive training in television in the 1950s (starting at CBS), and went on to an unparalleled career in the movies—capable of brilliance in every genre, and beloved by his peers and fans. FSM has released as many of his scores as we could get our hands on, from classic TV work like The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to famous features (Patton) and obscure gems like The Illustrated Man and 100 Rifles...heck, make that all of them. Jerry, we love you and miss you! IMDB

Ron Goodwin
633 Squadron/Submarine X-1
Force 10 From Navarone
Shoes of the Fisherman/Where Eagles Dare, The
Where Eagles Dare/Operation Crossbow

English composer Ron Goodwin (1925-2003) was most active in the 1960s and '70s and beloved for his tuneful war scores for "boys own" adventures—see 633 Squadron, Where Eagles Dare and Force 10 From Navarone. He also wrote charming scores for the Miss Marple mysteries and was successful as a conductor (performing many film music concerts) and recording artist. IMDB

Ron Grainer
Omega Man 2.0—Unlimited, The
Omega Man, The

Ron Grainer (1922-1981) was an Australian composer who did most of his best-known work for British film and TV; he penned the distinctively eerie theme to Doctor Who. His outstandingly tuneful score for the cult film The Omega Man became a cause célèbre for FSM and one of our signature releases. IMDB

Johnny Green
Raintree County
Wreck of the Mary Deare/Twilight of Honor, The

Johnny Green (1908-1989) was a hugely influential figure of 20th century American music, a composer, arranger, songwriter, music director, conductor and executive who from 1949 to 1959 presided over the world-class M-G-M music department, assigning composers and conducting many of their scores himself. His songs included standards like "Body and Soul"; he music-directed such classic musicals as An American in Paris and West Side Story; and as a composer he wrote the great Raintree County, restored by FSM as a 2CD set. IMDB

Dave Grusin
Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, The
Last Run/Crosscurrent/The Scorpio Letters, The
Man From U.N.C.L.E. Volume 3, Featuring The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., The
TV Omnibus: Volume One (1962-1976)
Yakuza, The

Dave Grusin (b. 1934) is a composer, arranger, jazz pianist and recording artist who has made major contributions to jazz and popular music as well as film, where his deft blending of orchestra and pop music (either/or, and often both!) has enriched projects in all genres—but he is especially known for his sensitive touch for acclaimed dramas. He has also composed a number of well-known TV themes, from The Name of the Game to Baretta to St. Elsewhere. FSM has released some of his earliest work on CD, including his TV music for The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.—our pleasure, as he was pretty much great from day one. IMDB

Earle Hagen
I Spy
I Spy, Vol. 2—The LPs

Earle Hagen (1919-2008) parlayed a career in the big band era as a trombone player, composer and arranger (he penned the classic "Harlem Nocturne") into a staff arranging job at Twentieth Century-Fox under Alfred Newman; when television took off in the 1950s, he became one of the most accomplished and prolific composers in the history of the medium. He was producer Sheldon Leonard's composer of choice and his work for I Spy is a high water mark for television; he wrote the themes to The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Andy Griffith Show, The Mod Squad among many others. As if that wasn't enough, he wrote books on composing and arranging, including a seminal textbook on the mechanics of scoring for picture. IMDB

Marvin Hamlisch
Swimmer, The

Marvin Hamlisch (b. 1944) is a multi-talented composer, songwriter, arranger and musical director with major accomplishments in film (The Sting, The Way We Were), Broadway (A Chorus Line) and songwriting ("Nobody Does It Better" from The Spy Who Loved Me). FSM released his first film score, for The Swimmer, which he did in his early twenties, but nonetheless demonstrates his immense aptitude for melody and drama. IMDB

Leigh Harline
7 Faces of Dr. Lao
Broken Lance
Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm/The Honeymoon Machine, The

Leigh Harline (1907-1969) was a Golden Age composer with stints at Walt Disney Studios (where he wrote "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio), RKO and Twentieth Century-Fox, as well as freelance work at other studios like M-G-M, where he scored two projects for George Pal. His score for Pal's 7 Faces of Dr. Lao (one of his last) is an absolute delight. IMDB
