Academy mines Goldsmith

Collection available to qualified scholars, students, researchers

Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s original handwritten music sketches complete with instrumentation, music timings and cue titles for more than 100 motion pictures from 1957 through 1996 have been donated to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Margaret Herrick Library.

“This is an extraordinary gift from one of film’s preeminent composers,” said Academy president Robert Rehme. “It’s a major addition to the library’s music holdings, providing remarkable documentation on film music of the past four decades.”

The composer’s more current projects, including this year’s “L.A. Confidential,” and “Air Force One,” will be added to the collection two years after each is released, as part of an ongoing arrangement.

Goldsmith won the Oscar in 1976 for his original score for “The Omen” (20th Century-Fox) and has been nominated 16 times for Academy Awards.

The Goldsmith Collection is available by appointment to qualified scholars, students and other researchers who have a special research need.
