Did he or did he not score...


I know that you can`t trust IMDb but it`s still an intriguing thing to think of: Someone have put the facts to IMDb that Jerry had a rejected score to Oliver Stone`s Wall Street, is this correct?
check it out on Jerry`s IMDb site and click on "other works" to see it for yourself

Yeah, I heard that too. In fact, the score was rejected and I read the main theme was recycled first in Alien Nation, then in.... The Russia House ! :D

Good film, by the way. Oliver Stone was a good director at the time and didn't ruin the movie with his MTV style. I liked the Stewart Copeland score.

Apparently Goldsmith was fired by Stone at a recording session.

I can't say what I heard about the condition Stone was in at the time, for fear of being sued!

Not rejected!


Goldsmith confirmed back in the late 80's he did not write a score to Wall Street. The composer said the project only got to early discussions between the director and himself and they could not agree on the musical direction. So they agreed to part company amicably before any music was written.

This is a very different version of events from the one told by Alex Kitman Ho, the film's producer!

I can only quote what Goldsmith wrote in a letter to the Goldsmith Society, at the time, and was published shortly after the Society had said similar in print. In the letter Goldsmith stated clearly that he had not written a score and left the project during early discussions with the director.
