On July 23, 1949, this film, double-billed with The Mikado (1939), was revived at the Little Carnegie Theatre in Manhattan. On August 31, 1949, Universal (by then called Universal International) concluded its 13-year association with Deanna Durbin, who hadn't a new feature in release for 1949. See more »

[Having just had Frost light a cigarette for him only to have it explode in his mouth]
When are you going to stop playing these cheap childish tricks on me?
John R. Frost:
The day you stop playing them on me.
Well, at least mine are funny, and new!
John R. Frost:
Oh, yeah? Well, mine work.

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
