All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
One of Jerry Goldsmith's best scores of the 1960s, and one that has bounced between several labels on LP and CD, The Blue Max finally comes into its own on Sony's expanded compact disc reissue, which boasts not only superior sound but all of the little bits of background source music used in various scenes in the movie.

    max doesn't have the blues

    I've been a fan of jerry godsmith,but he really outdid himself here. It's a pity that they killed bruno sacthel off in the movie,because it's based on a trilogy of novels,and it would have nice to have seen a sequel.
