From the Manufacturer

The 1981 Paramount Pictures film Going Ape!'s most prestigious contributor was veteran composer Elmer Bernstein, who was in the midst of his comedy cycle. In spite of being a goofball comedy, Going Ape! required music from Bernstein that was deceptively complicated—with a great deal of thematic material—and saw the composer collaborating with the filmmaker on enough songs to nearly qualify the movie as a musical. Bernstein''s score (sourced here from 2" 24-track masters) is full of the engagingly good-natured comic writing that made the composer such a perfect fit for the genre. He even adapted Nino Rota's theme from The Godfather to play as muzak in two restaurant scenes, not-so-subtly reminding the audience of actor Frank Sivero's connection to the classic gangster films.
