Ron Goodwin Dead At 77

Recommended Posts

The subject pretty much sums it up. I do not know many of Mr. Goodwins works but Where Eagles Dare is one of the finest war scores ever written. I think I'm going to start checking out some more of his music. I'm sorry that this had to be the catalyst to really get me to listen to his music.

You can read all about him here.

I have a cd he recorded for Chandos in the early 80's, with some quiet good music. Other was not that interesting.

And recently got a concert in vhs, featuring him conducting many Hollywood classics, including Williams Jurassic Park.

My good and dear trusted friend, Ron Goodwin, has died at his home in England.

Ron, who composed a brilliant and haunting score for my movie FRENZY, was 78. His other excellent scores include 633 Squadron, The Battle of Britain and Where Eagles Dare to name but 3.

A frequent visitor to Irish shores, he conducted a concert of his film music in Dublin just before Christmas. May he find solace and peace.

Hitch, who is in mourning. ROTFLMAO

Didn't know where to put this, but this thread is as good as any. A review of VALHALLA (in Norwegian) by yours truly, in what turned out to be Goodwin's last film project before he passed away:

I have a weird question. Do you know where this image came from?

I've always wondered whether the film had a widescreen version, but every release that I know of has it in fullscreen (even the digital).

I found it just by googling. It appears on numerous sites, like https://www.allmovie.com/movie/valhalla-v121172

 

With this new soundtrack release, it should really get a proper BR release too, in widescreen.
