A chronological journey through the filmography of composer Jerry Goldsmith.
57 Episodes
After joining us for what turned out to be a full-blown Odyssey Interview, composer Carlos Rafael Rivera (currently earning widespread acclaim for his fine work on the Netflix miniseries The Queen's Gambit) was kind enough to stick around for an examination of the Goldsmith-scored Rawhide episode "Incident in the Middle of Nowhere." It's a dynamic, exciting effort that both foreshadows later western scores like Rio Conchos and offers an instantly memorable main theme. Employing his considerable skills as a musician and educator, Carlos takes your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark on a full-blown guided tour of the score's assorted themes and motifs, breaking them down for us in remarkable detail in advance of our cue-by-cue journey. So when you have three hours to spare, just click play, then let it keep rollin', rollin', rollin'.Cues from Rawhide - "Incident in the Middle of Nowhere":Opening:  Clipped from Lady in Trouble0:12:57  -  Main Title (Dimitri Tiomkin)1:11:16  -  1.

In their historic second episode of Odyssey Soundtrack Spotlight, Douglass Fake joins Yavar to discuss Intrada Records' latest expansion of a classic Jerry Goldsmith score, written for Rod Lurie's 2001 military prison drama The Last Castle. So pour yourself a glass of whiskey, sit back in your comfortable armchair overlooking Fort Leavenworth, turn on your vintage sound system, and let Doug regale you with the tale of how The Last Castle's precarious position in American history caused Jerry Goldsmith a great deal of trouble. Doug also expounds why The Last Castle is one of his favorite Goldsmith scores, from its somberly beautiful trumpet solos to its carefully calculated dramatic build to its explosion of propulsive action music. It's an episode - and a score - that you won't want to miss.Please send your correspondence to

On infrequent occasions, members of the Goldsmith Odyssey team will disagree about something. On rare occasions, we will disagree about something without even realizing it. On the rarest of occasions —just the once, so far— examining the cause and nature of that disagreement requires its own miniature episode. Something a little less than a Gold Nugget, and a little more than Gold Dust. Join David and Yavar for our very first episode of Gold Shavings, a behind-the-scenes look at a complex misunderstanding regarding Jerry Goldsmith's thematic ideas for the GE Theater episode "The Legend That Walks Like a Man" (which we discussed in detail in Episode 25 of The Goldsmith Odyssey). Plus: a few insights into how our show gets made, a surprising musical connection to a Goldsmith score that has just been released on CD, and some additional observations that have emerged in the wake of our Episode 25 recording.

The Goldsmith Odysseys of this world don't come back. Comebacks are for ordinary podcasts. I don't know, maybe there never was a Goldsmith Odyssey. Maybe it's just the eternal fresh carnation, the eternal grin, the eternal hope. It's a legend. A legend that plays like a podcast. Well, here's to both of 'em: the legend... and the podcast. Within that podcast, your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark examine the General Electric Theater episode "The Legend That Walks Like a Man," and the alternately playful and tender Goldsmith score that accompanies it.

The Goldsmith Odyssey plays a round of musical chairs as former host Jens returns to his former seat to fill in for the absent Clark. Well, to be accurate, Jens's seat is currently occupied by David, and Yavar is in the same seat he's always been in, so Jens is actually in Clark's seat. Unless David sat there? Entirely possible Yavar sat there. I'm not sure if... anyway, your three humble hosts – that's David, Yavar, and Jens, not Clark – go all the way back to 1958 to examine a little-known and recently uncovered rarity: the Westinghouse Studio One episode "Tongues of Angels." They discuss the questionable merits of the episode itself, along with the less questionable merits of the subtly effective Goldsmith score. They offer thoughtful insights, and do not become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Enjoy!Cues from "Tongues of Angels":00:03:07 - 6. Mother 100:34:13 - 1. Tongues of Angels 100:38:30 - 2.

This episode marks the latest installment of a seemingly never-ending blood feud between the Goldsmith Odyssey family and the notorious Time clan (led by the eternally stubborn Father Time). Your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark have killed a whole lot of hours over the course of this podcast, and eagerly take out three more in the process of discussing two episodes of Gunsmoke: "Love Thy Neighbor" (featuring an alternately somber and suspenseful Goldsmith score) and "Old Faces" (in which Goldsmith offers a variety of colorful thematic ideas and makes compelling use of the banjo).

Cards on the table: the latest Odyssey Interview doesn't devote a lot of time to Jerry Goldsmith. However, we imagine that most Goldsmith fans are also fans of the great Elmer Bernstein, whose career mirrored Goldsmith's in a number of ways. Yavar has an in-depth conversation with Elmer's son Peter Bernstein, who discusses memories of growing up in the world of film music, his successful career as a rock musician, his eventual decision to follow in his father's footsteps, working with Elmer on scores like Canadian Bacon, Rough Riders, and Wild Wild West, working on solo assignments like the Ewok films and 21 Jump Street, running into Jerry Goldsmith while synth-shopping, and much more. This one is full of stories and details film music fans will enjoy, so give it a listen!00:00:00 - C2 Logo Fanfare (Jerry Goldsmith)00:05:52 - The Magnificent Seven - The Journey (Elmer Bernstein)00:13:51 - Exodus - Prelude (Ernest Gold conducted by Nic Raine)00:15:33 - Thin Red Line - Cost of Love (The Cretones)00:20:02 - The Trial of Billy Jack - Indian Vision (Elmer Bernstein)00:24:38 - The Man with the Golden Arm - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein)00:25:41 - The Ten Commandments - Exodus Part 2 (Elmer Bernstein)00:28:33 - The Rookies - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein)00:32:17 - Animal House - Faber College Theme (Elmer Bernstein)00:34:54 - Leonard Part 6 - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein)00:36:57 - The Great Santini - Ben’s Birthday Gift (Elmer Bernstein)00:39:16 - Stripes - Italy (Elmer Bernstein)00:42:17 - Heavy Metal - Flight to the Temple (Elmer Bernstein)00:47:09 - Hot Dog: The Movie - Top of the Hill (music by Peter Bernstein, sung by Clif Magness)00:51:07 - Cat-Women of the Moon - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein)00:52:40 - Saturday's Hero - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein)00:54:11 - Bolero - Exstasy (Elmer Bernstein)00:57:22 - Bolero - Bullero (Peter Bernstein conducted by Elmer Bernstein)01:01:47 - Ghostbusters - Library (Elmer Bernstein)01:08:15 - Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure - The Pulga Chase (Peter Bernstein)01:12:05 - Ewoks: The Battle for Endor - Escape (Peter Bernstein)01:13:53 - My Science Project - Blackout Town (Peter Bernstein)01:14:35 - The Black Cauldron - A Special Pig and a Vision (Elmer Bernstein)01:15:01 - The Three Amigos - The Return of the Three Amigos (Elmer Bernstein)01:19:33 - 21 Jump Street - Date with an Angel (Peter Bernstein)01:22:18 - Canadian Bacon - Mountie Letter / To Toronto (Peter and Elmer Bernstein)01:24:43 - Rough Riders - G Troop to the Rescue (Peter and Elmer Bernstein)01:31:36 - Rough Riders - Out West (Peter Bernstein)01:34:36 - Wild Wild West - Goodbye Loveless (Peter Bernstein)01:40:13 - Fallen Angels - End Title Theme (Elmer Bernstein)01:42:00 - Fallen Angels - Main Title Theme (Peter Bernstein)01:46:44 - A River Runs Through It (unused score) - Main Title (Elmer Bernstein conducted by Peter Bernstein)01:51:51 - Slipstream - Escape (Elmer Bernstein)01:56:52 - Snap!
