Press Release from Varese Sarabande:
Craig Safan (The Last Starfighter, Remo Williams) returns to Varèse Sarabande after far too many years. Joining our historic Encore series of great early Varèse release that have been out of print for too long, we are thrilled to bring back Safan's score for the acclaimed 1988 film "Stand and Deliver".
Los Angeles high school teacher Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos) is being hassled by tough students like Angel Guzman (Lou Diamond Phillips). But Jaime is also pressured by his bosses, who want him to control his raucous classroom. Caught in the middle, he opts to immerse his students in higher math. After intensive study, his students ace California's calculus test, only to learn that their scores are being questioned. They'll have to retake the exam in order to quiet the critics.
