Storyline

The film spotlights famed composer Franz Schubert, who loves a woman from afar. He stands by in quiet desperation as his beloved is married to a dashing military officer, then pours his sorrow (and his love) into his work. To avoid royalty payments, most of the Sigmund Romberg score is jettisoned, replaced by authentic Schubert themes. Written by Mathew Templar

Good singing,boring film
21 August 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

For some reason,particularly in the thirties films featuring classical music were produced in some number.Often starring classical singers who would have very brief film careers.In America there was Lily Pons,Grace Moore and Laurence Tibbett.In the UK there was Richard Tauber.He had a fine voice which probably took the audiences mind off his rather chubby appearance.Watching films of this sub genre if you are not into classical music can be rather hard going.You could say of Tauber singing he is a star,acting he is not.Having said that he is better in both departments than say Nelson Eddy.The plot was pure stooge and the film moved at a snail's pace.
