CD Includes Digital Download / Digital Booklet

Buysoundtrax presents a disc-on-demand release of the original motion picture score to THE SECRETARY, featuring music composed by Louis Febre for the 1995 thriller directed by Andrew Lane (JAKE SPEED, MORTAL PASSIONS, LONELY HEARTS), written by Graham Flashner, starring Mel Harris, Sheila Kelley, Barry Bostwick, James Russo, Ray Baker and Richard Herd. Released in 1995, THE SECRETARY tells the story of Ellen Bradford (Harris), a bright, upwardly mobile career woman who’s got it all: a loving family, a new fast-track job and a corner office with a view. But from the moment Ellen meets office secretary Diedre (Kelley), she senses that this isn’t going to be business as usual. And she’s right. When ambitious, calculating Diedre discovers a dark secret in Ellen’s past, she sees a chance to escape her dead end life - and at last make good in the eyes of her embittered father (Herd). Drawn into Deidre’s twisted web of psychopathic treachery, sexual manipulation and greed, Ellen can only watch in horror as her co-workers fall prey to a series of “suicides” and inexplicable accidents. But when the secretary from hell finally goes too far, Ellen is forced to either show her who’s boss – or risk losing her career, her family and quite possibly her life.
