The Vanishing

New Condition


Limited edition of 3000. Super rare and ultra limited Varese Sarabande club only release. In this riveting, tension-filled psychological thriller, a young woman (Sandra Bullock) mysteriously disappears, sending her boyfriend, Jeff (Kiefer Sutherland), on a years-long quest to find her. Not even a new love (Nancy Travis) can keep him from his obsessive search. All the while, the calculating psychopath (Jeff Bridges) who kidnapped his girlfriend stalks Jeff, ultimately taking him through the exact same steps that led to the crime. In order to find out what happened, Jeff must put his own life in the hands of this devious stranger. An excerpt from the soundtrack is available to listen to on track 1.


Jerry Goldsmith’s 1993 score for Twentieth Century-Fox’s remake of The Vanishing was one of the composer’s very rare ‘90s scores to go without an album release. Goldsmith’s score is both intense and beautiful, while steeped in psychological intrigue. It is stylistically similar to the composer’s brilliant work on Basic Instinct but is as unique as ever for Goldsmith and includes a rare exploration in jazz as the composer wraps up his score with a jazz trio.
A few cues from The Vanishing were premiered on our boxed set Jerry Goldsmith at 20th Century Fox, back in 2004. For this CD, however, the entire 65 minute score was remixed from the original multi-track tapes, presenting a definitive new look at Goldsmith’s overlooked music for this film.
