Jerry Goldsmith was the original composer for the film. He wrote music for the film before it was shot, and this music was then used as a temporary score during editing, and for test screenings. He spoke about this at the Director's Guild at the time. He said this was the first time he had ever done this. Unfortunately, he never got to do the final music for the finished film, and was replaced as the composer.
