Leopold Stokowski recorded the classical music in the film at the Philadelphia Academy of Music, using the Philadelphia Orchestra (of which he was still principal guest conductor), on a multi-channel sound system, the first time one was ever used to record music in a film. The musicians seen in the film, however, were L.A.-based players doing what was called "sideline" (seen but not heard, merely miming to a prerecorded soundtrack played by others). See more »

Enjoyed viewing this great film classic from 1937 and enjoying a long forgotten actress, Deanna Durbin,(Patsy Cardwell),"For the Love of Mary". Patsy plays a very talented young girl who has a fantastic voice and a father who is an unemployed musician played by Adolphe Menjou,(John Cardwell),"Bundle of Joy". John Cardwell goes behind the scenes where Leopold Stokowsk has just conducted a Symphony Orchestra and asks him for a job as a trumpet player or even a trombone or whatever. There is some drama and great classical music selections along with plenty of comedy by great talents like Billy Gilbert and Eugene Palette (John R. Frost)," The Mark of Zorro". Leopold Stokowsk was a famous conductor during this period of time and married a few women and had children, one of the marriages was to Gloria Vanderbilt. If you like an old time Classic, this is a good film to view and enjoy the great singing of Deanna Durbin. Enjoy
