Chinatown (1974). One of the greatest movies ever made! And great poster and soundtrack cover art . Original music by Jerry Goldsmith. Regarding the music:
Chinatown is a 1974 Robert Evans production, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunway and directed by Roman Polanski. Resulting in Goldsmith’s 7th Academy Award nomination, the incredible score was spotted, written, and recorded in only ten days!
Robert Evans had fallen in love with the Bunny Berigan recording of “I Can’t Get Started” and, as a result, used it as source music. While Evans felt that the entire score should have this flavor he was quickly talked out of it by Goldsmith, who created one of his finest compositions ever. The trumpet based theme Goldsmith created is a true classic.
