Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Heartfelt and sentimental performances with musical delights.
30 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have finally found the title to this 1941 film after many searches! Now, if I could only find out where to purchase, or view this little gem once again... I vividly remember seeing this movie in the church hall of my small hometown, when I was 11 or 12 years old. In spite of the rattling and clicking sound of the Bell and Howell 16mm projector, the wonderful music in the soundtrack impressed me. The story was appealingly told and even as youngster, the emotional impact of the boy dealing with the divorce of his parents made me most sympathetic.

I was learning piano at the time and a friend, the violin. To our great surprise, the young boy in the film's finale dazzlingly executed variations on Brahms' Hungarian Dance No.5 - a piece my friend was attempting to learn. I hoped the credits would reveal the name of the actual performer, and then find a 78 rpm recording of it at the local record shop. I never did find it, but in time I did get to appreciate the art of the film's classical violinist, Toscha Siedel. His name is still well etched in my mind after nearly 60 years!

Another exciting portion depicted in the film was the boy visiting a large US city. While visitng a recording studio there, he was shown and demonstrated the new far fetched invention, television. My, I then thought of this as pure science fiction. There is not much else I can describe but these two special moments remain vividly in my memory. Now, to keep looking and praying it will be issued on DVD some day.. Dreaming? I hope not.

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED! NEWLY RELEASED AND DVD FOUND ON EBAY. AFTER A 60 YEAR WAIT, TIME TO POP THE CHAMPAGNE!(Revision Added July 4th,2006)
