Eleanor & Franklin

1976 and 1977

No Soundtrack Release


The Movie

Edward Herrmann is one of those underrated actors--he gives a helluva performance in anything that's worth while--but he shows up in an awful lot of crap. These were two TV mini-series about FDR and Eleanor Franklin--the first was a hit so "The White House Years" was an obvious sequel. I never saw either one of them. If they come out on DVD I may give them a try.


The Music

Very few TV movies or mini-series rate a soundtrack release (usually only the biggies like Shogun and Roots manage it), and this one never saw the light of day.


Release Notes

No soundtrack release in any format, but the theme shows up on Nic Raines's The Classic John Barry.
