1 Goldsmith scored Episode of the obscure 1959 Sit Com is on this DVD Compilation of Rare TV Comedies.

http://www.oldies.com/product-view/7243D.html

About 6 minutes of score including Main and End Credits music.

I've recorded a few cues through my photo booth. Excuse lousy sound (adjust levels accordingly), but at least you get the taste until you buy this affordable DVD for yourself. Goldsmith's music and lighter style here is similar to some of his work on the CBS Radio Shows he scored some years earlier and where he got his start. Nice pleasant Jerry. Enjoy!

PECK'S BAD GIRL Episode Intro with Patty McCormack and Main Title Theme Music:

A short Cue where Torey (Patty) is feeling sad and then her father returns home:

Sexy "Movie Walk" Cue:

PECK'S BAD GIRL End Credits Theme Music:

There's a few other short scene bridging cues and a nice Parisian sounding piece playing under dialogue of Torey's mother talking about a young french boyfriend, which carries the seeds of Goldsmith's ANGIE style music.

I believe this is the Series Pilot Episode. In the End Credits of the episode the composer gets a nice card saying: "Music composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith"

A CD featuring Goldsmith's Theme and music cues from 14 episodes, would be most welcome!




The back artwork card on the DVD Case makes reference to Goldsmith in the following:

Peck's Bad Girl (1959): Patty McCormack, who earned an Oscar nomination for her role in the film version The Bad Seed (1956), plays Torey Peck, an all-American teenager - who sometimes puts her at odds with her bewildered parents and her bratty little brother. This sitcom, which ran only 14 episodes, was one of the first which broke down the fourth wall, as Torey speaks directly to the audience throughout. The series' music was provided by Jerry Goldsmith, among the most esteemed composers in Hollywood history.

Well done Zooba. More Goldsmith discovered. Fascinating stuff.

Very nice find of obscure early Jerry Goldsmith TV scoring!
Thanks for digging this one up!

Makes one wonder what Goldsmith treasures are still buried in the CBS vaults.

Speaking of early Goldsmith, Dr. Burbella, did you ever get to listen to the Goldsmith score on that 16mm print of the WORLD IN WHITE pilot that you mentioned a few years back?

He ran it for us!

Very nice to hear what later became the DR. KILDARE theme.

Zooba you usually unearth special material from those composers I want to hear, even if it isn't super special. But here you hit a wonderfully smooth floating jazz comedy combination that I have never heard before. And THAT is Jerry's hallmark for me, totally unique. Another Jerry Goldsmith gem found by Zooba!

THANK YOU!

Glad to share this with everyone. My pleasure. Always fun discovering as of yet Unheard Goldsmith Treasures.

What's left? What's something of Goldsmith's you've never heard and always wanted to?

There are some 1950's Radio Shows he scored I still haven't found, like from the HALLMARK HALL OF FAME:

Simon Bolivar
Dr. Will Mayo
Antonio Stradivarius

From CBS Romance:

Autumn Love
Summer Love
The Sergeant and the Lady
A Quiet Little Party

and his Theme and music from Juvenile Court.

I think he scored one WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE (Steve MCqueen) Episodes I never saw or heard. Anyone have a Episode name on that one? And there's a few PLAYHOUSE 90, STUDIO ONE and G.E. Theater Episode yet to see and hear.

LIGHTS OUT, a TV pilot movie from 1972 about killer dolls, and DUSTY, a TV movie from 1983 that starred Saul Rubinek. Both are uber-rare. Oh, and THE PUBLIC EYE, of course, an unused score so shadowy that some people debate it's existance.

There's plenty of obscure pilots and TV episodes left. And he said (I think it was that long interview on Youtube, made in sections), that he did the music for an audio book (early on in his career).
