AllMusic Review by

This generous three-disc set from Varese Sarabande spans 75 years of film music from some of the industry’s greatest composers, including John Williams, Bernard Herrmann, Alan Silvestri, Jerry Goldsmith, Alfred Newman, Bill Conti, and a host of others. Listeners looking for familiar themes may find the studio-centric compilation a bit daunting, as it has a tendency to focus on less obvious blockbusters like Author! Author! Commando, The Rains of Ranchipur, and Romancing the Stone, but it’s a refreshing change from overviews that focus solely on films like Star Wars and The Godfather.
