This music film, One Fine Day , is the iconic, classic celebration of the American Woman from the 1800’s to the present. Set to a rousing anthem written and sung by Kay Weaver, this fast-paced music-film uses over 100 scenes, beginning with black-and-white stills of Sojourner Truth, Emily Dickinson and Harriet Tubman which dissolves into live action suffrage parades, that march us into present-day footage of Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, and Geraldine Ferraro. Guaranteed to lift your heart and bring you to your feet. . The film was made for Geraldine Ferraro’s historic campaign as the first woman to be nominated for Vice President by a major party (D-1984).
