Another Oscar-winner, this time for Best Song, David Shire’s Norma Rae makes its premiere on this day. The score itself is probably not even all that familiar to most people since so little of it was actually used in the film. This makes this release a significant discovery, and a worthy and important one at that!
Shire’s score is beautiful and noble. It is poignant and touching. As Shire himself – it is masterful.
In an Oscar-winning performance, Sally Field is unforgettable as Norma Rae, the Southern millworker who revolutionizes a small town and discovers a power in herself she never knew she had. Under the guidance of a New York unionizer (Ron Leibman) and with increasing courage and determination, Norma Rae organizes her fellow factory workers to fight for better conditions and wages. Based on a true story, Norma Rae is the mesmerizing tale of a modern day heroine. Beau Bridges co-stars.
2009 is the 30th anniversary for Norma Rae so we thought we’d celebrate by premiering its never-heard score by one of film music’s great treasures … David Shire.
