The 1995 documentary is on DVD for the first time with over two and a half hours of bonus material. The project has been two years in the making, during which time both Jerry Goldsmith and Fred Karlin (composer and director of the original documentary) tragically passed away.

The DVD features the original 70 minute documentary, directed by Award-winning composer Fred Karlin, filmed in 1994. This chronicles Goldsmith’s career with film and music clips and contributions from his family (father, wife and son Joel, etc), directors (Paul Verhoeven, Franklin Schaffner, Richard Donner, Curtis Hanson, etc) and colleagues (Arthur Morton, Alexander Courage, etc). The doc also shows Goldsmith at work on Curtis Hanson’s film The River Wild.

In addition there are a number of special bonus features exclusive to the DVD.

Bruce Botnick, Recording Mixer (25 mins)
Ken Hall, Music Editor (32 mins)
Alexander Courage, Orchestrator (14 mins)
Jo Ann Kane, Music Copyist (8 mins)
Sandy De Crescent, Orchestra Contractor (9 mins)
Arthur Morton, Orchestrator (11 mins)

Special feature:
60 minutes of extended scoring session footage from The River Wild. Watch Goldsmith rehearse and record 3 cues, working with the musicians and reviewing the film with director Curtis Hanson in the recording booth.
