When I was 12 years old I was enchanted with composer, #JerryGoldsmith . Movie Soundtracks were a big part of my record collection - not just pop records. I decided to write Jerry a fan letter and this is what he wrote me back. What a guy....years later I used to bump into him at Caffe Roma in BH and he'd always take the time to tell me how much he appreciated my letter and I that I was his youngest female fan back in 82. Hard to believe. At that time I had taken a tour at Universal Studios and became obsessed with the Psycho House. That's how I discovered Jerry's underrated score. (It had just been released). His scores to Magic, In Like Flynt, and The Twilight Zone followed. Because of him I took vigorous piano lessons and learned how to play a lot of his themes. I Miss seeing him around. He had a long ponytail that suited him so well. He's STILL my favorite composer of all time. His theme to Poltergeist is basically the soundtrack of my childhood.
