Maurice Jarre: Ghost

It’s fair to say that most folk would probably think of Unchained Melody when they think of Ghost, but Maurice Jarre's full orchestral score is one of the greatest of his career.

Director: Jerry Zucker

The Film: Shortly after moving into a new Manhattan apartment, a pair of lovers are separated by a street thug's bullet. Communicating through a frazzled false medium, the man's ghost tries to avenge his death and protect his girlfriend.

The Composer: Maurice Jarre is the now retired French composer and triple Academy Award winner for his scores for Passage To India, Dr Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia. As you may have guessed, he's also Jean Michel Jarre's dad.
