A great score by a great composer, Jerry Goldsmith who was inspired more often than not by the director Franklin J. Schaffner for whom he scored no less than 7 films, and The Boys From Brazil is no dull film either.
I do remember when this film first appeared and even managed to speak with its star Gregory Peck briefly not least to secure an autograph while he was promoting the film on tour in Australia. What a charm of a man and I say this because of the role he plays in this film is quite the reverse, probably the nastiest he ever played and a role quite underrated and unfairly criticised by some critics, who seemed to give the impression they knew more about acting in front of cameras than he himself, and they certainly missed the fun of it all, everyone likes a good villain, especially when he comes to a sticky end…
However, back to the film score of Jerry Goldsmith. Probably what instantly associates with the film is hearing the opening waltz theme - a-la-Richard Strauss (not the other non related waltz king). but thats where the similarities end, because its the powerhouse score itself, by Goldsmith that adds immeasurably to the films heavy underlay, pointing and shifting the drama in all sorts of different directions, either highly dramatic or darkly humorous and suspenseful. The music is as memorable as the film itself.

The soundtrack music when originally released on LP and subsequently on CD, was put in suite form, especially edited by the composer and was drawn from a score that lasts almost an 1 hour.
