Designed as a star vehicle for Grace Moore, the film delighted Columbia by becoming a major hit with Moore attributed for most of its success. Indeed, she received an Oscar nomination for the role. MGM tried to lure her to their side with the offer of a starring role alongside Maurice Chevalier, sharing top billing. Chevalier had never conceded top billing to anyone else and was most put out by such move, to the extent that the film was never made and Chevalier quit Hollywood for good. None of Moore's subsequent films would ever match the success of One Night of Love (1934) and she stopped making films in 1939. She was killed in a plane crash at Copenhagen airport 8 years later.

I have such lovely memories of Grace Moore in this movie which I first saw in 1968. I liked her subsequent films with Franchot Tone (The King Steps Out)Cary Grant (For You Alone) and Melvyn Douglas (I'll Take Romance) but One Night of Love is my favourite. I have a precious video copy from TV but hope Columbia will release it on DVD soon so that many more folk will perhaps share my liking for this singer who wasn't much of an actress but somehow in this film the character fitted her. And her singing is first class - her "One Fine Day" is so moving. Tullio Carminatti is very good as her singing teacher whom she falls in love with. Grace tragically died in a plane crash in 1946. Who knows, maybe Columbia will give us a box set of these 4 of her films.
