Storyline

Amelia is a gifted violinist who is in danger of quitting the Brissac Academy of Music. Julius arranges to have a scholarship given to her through his employee Tony so that Julius can escort Amelia to every musical event in the city. The trouble begins when he cannot meet her one night and Tony goes in his place. Tony believes that Julius and Amelia are a couple and then son Paul thinks that Tony and Amelia are a couple as he is sending her the money. The worst part is that Amelia might leave classical music for swing music with classmates Dusty, Joy and the band. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Trivia

Although Jane Wyman had no trouble faking the fingering of a dummy violin, Olivia de Havilland had to have someone do it for her. In all her close-ups, the arm doing the fingering belonged to a professional hidden from view, or the fingers were hidden from view. She controlled only the bow. See more »

When Amelia throws the book through the glass door, it breaks out only the top part of the glass. But, when she leaves the office, only the center part is broken out, before she slams the door and breaks the rest. See more »

A delightful programmer
23 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is basic definition of a programmer, a movie devoid of any ideas of its own except those that have been gleamed from other movies, and characters that are composites of characters that we have seen in other movies, stock characters so they are called. That said, the movie is delightful and it was a hit in its year of release, not a big hit for a hit none the less. Olivia de Havilland, a few years before becoming Oscar winning actress headlines this stepper. Obviously, it was to escape movies like this that Olivia sued WB and won but there is a fun to this cut-out characters. The story is that of a girl whom is a violin prodigy and has a school scholarship but is working on the side to make money to send back home to the suffering family. To make things easier, a benefactor gives money to her disguised as a scholarship. This causes people to think she is his "unknown woman". Complications arise and all is well that ends well. Note, there is a bit of whimsy flight of fancy on the part of director Curtis Bernhandt who turns Olivia and co-star Jeffrey into peris dancing on a large scale of written compositions for great classical music as they dance to the music.
