The color photography and a fine score composed by Hammerstein and Romberg were among the highlights of this early musical. The yarn concerns the thwarted love affair between a young composer, Gray, and Segal, the woman he is destined to marry, but doesn't because of a jealous

misunderstanding. She goes on to marry the wealthy Pidgeon, while Gray gets involved in his own unhappy marriage to a woman who doesn't understand his passion for music. After a period of 40 years, when Gray is long dead and Segal is listening to the symphony her former lover composed, their

grandchildren do eventually marry. The story is a bit heavy on the sentiment, but stacks up for some decent entertainment. Worthwhile if only for the chance to listen to onetime crooner Pidgeon's reedy, nasal baritone singing voice, a remarkable revelation. Unlike most other Romberg and

Hammerstein works, this one was especially written for the screen, rather than being a stage adaptation. Songs include "I Bring a Love Song," "I'm Lonely," "You Will Remember Vienna," "Here We Are," "Regimental March," "Yes, Yes, Yes," "Goodbye My Love," and "Viennese Nights."
