Storyline

In 1865, the cadets of a Russian Naval Academy ship have shore leave in Morocco; among them is (fictionalized) future composer 'Nicky' Rimsky-Korsakov. In search of a piano, Nicky and singing ship's doctor Klin meet a family of once-wealthy Spanish colonists...and their daughter Cara who secretly dances in a cabaret. Romantic complications ensue, but Nicky seems less interested in Cara's favors than in inspirations for his future masterpieces. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Rimsky Korsakov goes Hollywood
23 August 2001 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This is great fun - Hollywood history at its tongue-in-cheek best, with Jean-Pierre Aumont's Rimsky-Korsakov writing Scheherazade for Yvonne deCarlo's dancer. Added attractions include the wonderful Eve Arden and Brian Donlevy.
