Originally, the movie was scored by William Walton. During production, that score was replaced with a new one by Ron Goodwin, with the exception of the climactic "Battle in the Air," retained from Walton's score. The film was originally released that way in theaters in Britain and the U.S. The first DVD release had the entire, previously unreleased score by Walton instead of the familiar Goodwin music. A second DVD release shortly thereafter had the Goodwin score with Walton's "Battle in the Air," as in the original U.K.-U.S. theatrical showing. The current Blu Ray disk has the Goodwin/Walton music, with the fully Walton score available as an alternative. There has never been a U.S. version of the film with "anonymous orchestral dreck".
