Screen version of the life of the famous Swedish opera star Jenny Lind, otherwise known as the "Swedish Nightingale." Moore, of the Metropolitan Opera, portrays the singer in this film which seems more like an excuse to display the vocal talents of Moore than anything else. There was,

however, some room left for the development of a romance between Moore and Denny who pursues the diva from city to city, trying to gain her affection in any manner possible. He eventually does so, but only after the singer has temporarily lost her voice, and he has received a knock on the head

which causes his eventual blindness. As expected, the highlight of the film is the singing virtuosity of Moore. Songs include: "Rataplan" from "The Daughter of the Regiment" (Donizetti), "Casta Diva" (from Bellini's "Norma"), "Is It Destiny," "The Student's Song," and "I Hear Your Voice" (Clifford

Grey, Oscar Straus), "Oh Why" (Arthur Freed, Herbert Stothart, Henry M. Woods), "Swedish Pastoral" (Howard Johnson, Stothart), and "Lovely Hour" (Carrie Jacobs Bond).
