Boyer is a talented but impoverished musician living in the home of his slightly mad mentor and four wild daughters in the Austrian Alps. Fontaine is one of the daughters and she develops a crush on Boyer of which he is not aware. When Coburn, an uncle, turns up with his socially prominent
daughter, Smith, a romance blooms between her and the musician and they eventually marry and return to England. Fontaine pops up in England just in time to give Boyer the inspiration he needs to continue his work. He soon realizes it is really Fontaine he loves but during the presentation of his
successful symphonic poem his young love is so elated she has a heart attack and dies. Fontaine is brilliant, earning an Oscar nomination for her performance (she lost to Jennifer Jones for THE SONG OF BERNADETTE). (Remade from the 1933 production; a silent version in 1928 starred Ivor Novello and
Mabel Poulton.) The musical tone poem "Tomorrow" evolved from Korngold's powerful score. The film was originally set for Errol Flynn and Joan Leslie to star.
