WILSON (CD)
Composed by: Alfred Newman

SEALED

The music to Darryl F. Zanuck's 1944 production of Wilson was composed by the legendary Alfred Newman and, in addition to the composer's original thematic material, includes several dozen songs from the pre-Great War period.

The compact disc has been compiled from the original scoring sessions preserved in the Fox archive and features virtually every note of music that was recorded for the picture. Filled with rousing marches, raucous campaign songs and majestic fanfares, as well as insightful accompaniment to scenes of tension and pathos, Newman's score is highly evocative of the period in which Woodrow Wilson lived, loved and earned his place in American history as one of our most influential presidents.

According to statements issued to the press at the time of Wilson’s original release, the musical score was as carefully plotted and researched, as was every other aspect of the film. Conducting a symphony orchestra of 125 pieces and a chorus of 80 voices, Alfred Newman, Musical Director at Fox, said at the time that the score to Wilson should be reflective of a "broad slice of American life" and "chose music to give the proper feeling to every scene."

This historical biography of Thomas Woodrow Wilson, the 28th American president, provides a rich panoramic examination of the personal and professional life of the man who held office during World War I. It chronicles his career from president of Princeton and governor of New Jersey to his presidential election and two terms in the White House. Finally, the epic examines Wilson's staunch efforts to achieve peace through the League of Nations--efforts that failed and led to his ultimate political defeat. Even among the handful of presidents who have survived two terms of office, the events of Wilson’s life and career combine with his personal qualities to create a story of unusual dramatic power. Through accurately portraying his preacher-like oratory style and commitment to abstract ideals, along with his background as a history professor, the loss of a wife, his battles with the senate, the White House marriage, and Wilson's tragic and debilitating stroke, “WILSON” emerges with almost as much integrity as the man it portrays. Stars Alexander Knox, Charles Coburn, and Geraldine Fitzgerald. 1944

Producer Darryl F. Zanuck remarked that "Wilson" was the film of which he was the proudest.
