Goldsmith Receives Posthumous Walk of Fame Star

on

The late, great, Oscar-winning composer Jerry Goldsmith received a well-deserved Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on May 9. Goldsmith, who died in 2004 at age 75, started his career at CBS and ultimately scored more than 200 movies and television shows. Along the way, of course, he composed the scores for such Star Trek enterprises as The Motion Picture, The Final Frontier, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis. The heraldic theme from TMP was used for The Next Generation, and he also created the main theme for Voyager, winning an Emmy Award for the latter.
