In approximate order of typing (no repeat composers allowed):

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (John Williams)
DRESSED TO KILL (Pino Donaggio)
ALIEN (Jerry Goldsmith)
PRINCE OF DARKNESS (John Carpenter)
THE MEDUSA TOUCH (Michael J Lewis)
HELLRAISER (Christopher Young)
A VIEW TO A KILL (John Barry)
DEEP RED (Goblin / Giorgio Gaslini)
THE PRINCE OF TIDES (James Newton Howard)
THE SEA HAWK (Erich Wolfgang Korngold)

Some of those (like THE MEDUSA TOUCH) are in there for purely personal reasons; this was one of the first scores than got me interested in film music. I know there's not much "Golden Age" there; this may be something I'll look into later on, when time and, more importantly, money permit. I do want to dig deeper into Miklos Rozsa, for one.

NP: THE RAINMAKER (Elmer Bernstein)

When you have 600 film scores, it's extremely difficult to choose only 10 top titles, but I love to list!

EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
CONAN THE BARBARIAN
SUPERMAN
THE FINAL CONFLICT
NIGHTBREED
ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE
KRULL
THE FLY II
TOTAL RECALL
FIELD OF DREAMS

As with others here, subject to change! smile

I'm not happy narrowing it down to 10 and some of you will scoff at some of these but that's the fun of lists. I also did not repeat composers though it kills me to leave off The Song of Bernadette.

In no particular order:

The Omen
The Best Years of Our Lives
All About Eve
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
The Lion in Winter
Lawrence of Arabia
Ragtime
A Streetcar Named Desire
Peyton Place
To Kill a Mockingbird
