Incredibly soppy tearjerker starring Andrews as a brilliant pianist who abandons composing his masterful concerto after being struck blind in an accident. Socialite Oberon takes pity on the composer, and feigns blindness and destitution to gain his confidence. Meanwhile, in her real

identity, she offers a large cash prize for the best musical composition, while encouraging him--as the poor, blind girl--to finish his concerto and enter it in the contest. Andrews finally relents and finishes the piece, wins the prize, and then uses the money to restore his sight. He soon falls

in love with the wealthy Oberon, whom he considers his benefactress, until he realizes his heart truly belongs to the poor, blind girl, whom he is delighted to find is the very same woman. Entirely too contrived to be taken seriously, NIGHT SONG is maudlin as the day is long and can only be

suffered through by rabid fans of melodrama. Musically, however, the film rates higher. Backed by the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Eugene Ormandy, Arthur Rubinstein's performance of the Stevens' piano concerto is superb.
