Jerry Goldsmith's Lilies Of The Field
25-May-2012 - Perseverance presents the reissue (but only for the US and Canada) of the soundtrack to the 1963 Sidney Poitier film, Lilies Of The Field. This movie is still seen by many as a milestone in cinema. The film launched Sidney Poitier and earned him an Oscar and Golden Globe for his portrayal of handyman Homer Smith, the first time an African-American actor had ever won a major award for Best Actor. The film was a landmark in cinema and needed a composer who could convey the film with a down to earth, rural, folksy sound. Jerry Goldsmith created a score that was both jubilant and accessible for anybody to listen to.
