This is a biography on the famous songwriter, Stephen Foster. If you don't know who that is, he's the guy responsible for Old Folks At Home, I Dream Of Jeannie and Swanee River among other compositions. This biography doesn't really tell you much in terms of gossip about the guy (he had a failed marriage that turned him to drink!) and the acting here is just OK, with Douglass Montgomery's hideous age makeup overpowering his performance here. I guess the main focus is the music. I guess that's not bad, but mind you, we're talking the later 1800's hit parade here. So like we're talking about like 'Beautiful Dreamer" territory here. One thing though, I just love how the main music is strains of 'Old Folks At Home'. I mean, you've never heard the song used as a background to a man under a drink's spell!
