Ameche, formerly an obscure Chicago radio actor, makes his film debut playing the two sons of Austrian bell-ringer Hersholt. After Hersholt's wife dies in childbirth, he finds out the newborn is deaf. He becomes estranged from his older son, who heads to America to become an aeronautical

engineer. After taking his deaf child to a monastery, Hersholt becomes a derelict. The deaf son grows up and somehow regains his hearing in a WW I accident, then becomes a musician and follows his brother to America. He becomes a great conductor and eventually is reunited with Hersholt, who always

loved music. Hersholt becomes a bell-ringer in his son's orchestra and the film ends. Overly long and tediously directed, this film is also hampered by the contrived plot. There are implausible moments, and some props lack authenticity. During the film's initial release, a short trailer was shown

that introduced Ameche as a newcomer at 20th Century-Fox.
