Goldsmith went on to collaborate with many great filmmakers throughout his career, including Creator/RobertWise (''TheSandPebbles'', ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture''), Creator/HowardHawks (''Rio Lobo''), Creator/OttoPreminger (''Film/InHarmsWay''), Creator/RomanPolanski (''Film/{{Chinatown}}''), Creator/StevenSpielberg / Creator/TobeHooper (''Film/{{Poltergeist}}''), and Creator/RidleyScott (''Film/{{Alien}}''). But his most fruitful collaboration was arguably that with Franklin Schaffner (for whom Goldsmith scored ''PlanetOfTheApes'', ''Film/{{Patton}}'' and ''{{Film/Papillon}}'').

Goldsmith learned to play the piano with Jakob Gimpel at age six (he would later employ Gimpel to play piano in his soundtracks for ''Planet of the Apes'' and ''Mephisto Waltz''). At fourteen, he studied composition, theory and counterpoint with Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (whose other prestigious students were Nelson Riddle, André Previn, Henry Mancini and John Williams). Goldsmith attended the University of Southern California, where he became the student of film composition by legendary composer [[MiklosRozsa Miklós Rózsa]], who had written the score for the Creator/IngridBergman movie ''Film/{{Spellbound}}''. Goldsmith developed an interest in writing scores for movies after being inspired by Rózsa.

Goldsmith was perhaps the most eclectic composer in cinema, [[AwesomeMusic/JerryGoldsmith providing tailor-made scores for many different genres,]] including war films (''Film/TheBlueMax''), film noir (''Film/LAConfidential''), action movies (''Film/FirstBlood''), erotic thrillers (''BasicInstinct''), sports pictures (''{{Rudy}}''), westerns (''Bad Girls''), comic book adaptations (''Film/{{Supergirl}}''), and science fiction (the original ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' and five ''Franchise/StarTrek'' films). His ability to write visceral, terrifying music won him his only UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for his violent choral/orchestral score for ''Film/TheOmen1976''. He also was awarded with Emmys for ''The Red Pony'', the Holocaust drama ''QB VII'', the Babe Didrikson Zaharias biopic ''Babe'' (fun fact: Goldsmith was later attached to score the [[Film/{{Babe}} better-known movie of the same name]], but it didn't happen) and the epic ''Masada'', as well as the theme from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''.
