Soundtrack Ratings







The Illustrated Man

Important Sci-Fi fantasy score from the late 60's now beautifully preserved on CD by FSM. The film may not have garnered any acclaim but Goldsmith's score remains a genre classic. Even author Bradbury could not fail to be impressed by the score's originality and the colourful ingenuity of the orchestration. Goldsmith's mystical folk like theme introduces three dark fantasy tales each with their own musical signature. With careful spotting, inspired instrument palette that included traditional string section, icy cold electronics, and tried and trusted 60's favourites Sitar and guitars, Goldsmith made Illustrated Man a musical feast of film scoring bravado.
