Here’s a Varčse Encore release of another very early title from our CD Club. Miklós Rózsa’s luminous Fedora was actually just the second title released from the original Varčse CD Club, way back in 1989! It’s been out of print, expensive and hard to get ever since. But now the timing is perfect. The film itself was just released on Blu-ray a few weeks ago, allowing a new generation to discover it. We are so excited about making this late-Rózsa classic available once again.
As a special bonus, this Encore Edition also retains the Crisis Guitar Suite, performed by Daryl Denning.
In Fedora (1978), Billy Wilder approaches Hollywood stardom in the same fashion as he did in Sunset Boulevard--with cynicism, regret, understanding, and awe. Fedora (Marthe Keller) is film's most intriguing movie queen. Rumored to be well into her sixties, the actress has remained a starlet for over four decades--retaining youth and radiance despite her advancing years. The mystery behind her numinous persona has never ceased to captivate audiences. Even now, as she lives in seclusion on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu, the public buzzes for her to return to the screen. When producer Barry Detweiler (William Holden) travels to Corfu, staking his faltering career on Fedora's return, he discovers the actress's tragic secret. Fedora's eternal loveliness may not be the result of defying her age, but of concealing her youth.
