Jerry Goldsmith 1929-2004
It would be difficult to reflect on both Jerry Goldsmith's film music legacy and his recent passing without devoting an entire issue of FSM to him; so that's what we've done. From fan letters and remembrances to an in-depth look at his life and musical legacy, we've covered a lot of ground. Just as important, we hope you, Jerry's fans, find it a fitting tribute to a man whose monumental work meant so much to so many.
