He should definitely have been honoured with one when he was alive.

Thank you for the video link Regina :)

Jerry is sorely missed around here, but his music lives on especially thanks mostly to Intrada.

He probably wouldn't have cared either way. His talent speaks for itself, and what a talent he was.

My point was along the lines of:
a) He was an Academy Award Winner, after all
b) In his career, he probably "saved" more films than any actor ever did!
c) I don't think that composers - outside of perhaps John Williams - get anywhere near the level of credit, publicly, that they deserve, or have as much name recognition, as they deserve, or we would like to think that they have

Walking down Hollywood Blvd years ago the first star I saw was Elmer Bernstein's. I believe it's the first one at the end before it becomes a residential neighborhood. At the time there were homeless people being paid to sit on the filthy sidewalk and clean the street grime from each star with little wire brushes.

For what it's worth, glad Jerry Goldsmith has been given his after all of these years. Someone took a jack hammer to Donald Trump's star awhile back. By the way, why was Donald Trump given a star in the first place?

I'd figure it was on the grounds of his once-popular Celebrity Apprentice TV series ... and I'd bet he paid the requisite $30,000 fee himself with a Trump Foundation check.
