The quality of acting as well as the music was much better then the other versions.
I saw the 1943 production when I was just a young boy and fell in love with the movie. I saw it several times and always enjoyed it. The production starring Gordon McRea lacked quality acting and the music was not as good as the one starring Dennis Morgan.
Kathryn Grayson made some good musicals. Showboat was one of them, saw it many times also and have it in my video library. Irene Manning's soprano voice is much softer to the ear and much easier to listen to. Kathryn Grayson's voice is a very high pitched, sharp sounding voice. At times too sharp to listen to.
I'm no movie critic but I do know what I like. I do hope that eventually the 1943 production of "The Desert Song" will be available on video or DVD for old timers like me to enjoy the nostaglia of watching and listening to one of the truly great musicals from the early days of Hollywood.
