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>

Beautiful music plus beautiful Yvonne DeCarlo
3 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rimski-Korsakov was a great composer who wrote much very beautiful music, especially his masterpiece, Scheherazade, which is featured in this fictionalized film about his early years as a Russian naval cadet (although he really was a naval cadet before he switched to music as a full- time vocation). Yvonne DeCarlo was an exceptionally beautiful woman, more appreciated for her outstanding beauty than for her acting which, nevertheless, was reasonably competent. That combination was good enough for me when I first saw this movie decades ago as a teenager, and it's still enough to let me enjoy it as an adult. If musical beauty plus feminine beauty are appealing to you, please treat yourself to this film. I do, however, wish that it was available as a DVD.
