Documentary filmmaker Jerome Hill engaged Hollywood songwriter Hugh Martin to score his 22-minute film about the painter Grandma Moses. Martin, best-known for his songs with Ralph Blane for the warmhearted Meet Me in St. Louis, was perhaps a little out of his depth when it came to scoring, but he certainly knew how to write effective tunes that could evoke the New England world of Moses' paintings. This is not the soundtrack to the film, but rather a suite put together by Alec Wilder, played by André Kostelanetz's orchestra, and conducted by Daniel Saidenberg, based on Martin's score.
