Friendly Persuasion (1956)-William Wyler’s Thanksgiving gift to us–
A very soul searching movie about a pacifist family during the difficult times of the American Civil War with lovely photography and music scoring.
Dimitri Tiomkin (seated at piano), with (left to right) director William Wyler, actor Gary Cooper, actor Walter Catlett, actor Robert Middleton and choral director Jester Hairston. Taken during the music rehearsal or recording session for “Friendly Persuasion,” circa 1955-1956.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
