Goofs

When Olga comes to Hugh's cabin prior to the ship docking in New York, there is a splash of light reflected off the water on the wall behind Hugh. However this reflection should come through the porthole, and be on the wall opposite the porthole not on the same wall. It is unlikely that Hugh has a cabin with two portholes. See more »

Lots of fun

Gigli was a controversial singer and was not appreciated in New York, returned to Europe and did well for himself. A fireplug of a man with an Italian peasant frame, he was hardly cut out for hero roles but like his forebear, Enrico Caruso, when he opened his mouth and sang what came out was sheer delight. This film which as one reviewer noted does little for his singing and music spins together a bittersweet story of conflicted love, disappointed romance and some wonderful sentimental 30s story telling. It's never maudlin and though replete with sentiment, never overly sentimental. Interesting to note that the female villain, Jeanne Stuart was married to the Baron de Rothschild of the famous banking family and the heroine, Joan Gardner was married to the director, Zoltan Korda, brother of the famous Hungarian director, Alexander Korda.

This is a wonderful little film with some very pleasing moments and Gigli is a delight as the tenor.
