What do you do when you are an effervescent teen called Polly and you have a dad who is the skipper of a luxury liner? You ask him to take you on a cruise to Rio of course. What if Captain Bradford refuses and wants you to stay in your boring boarding-school? You stow away, it goes without saying. What if you want to become a singer? Well, you try to convince an operatic star on board of your singing skills. What if Daddy objects to realizing that her daughter's new friend Laura has a crush on him? Just play Cupid for him.Don't you worry, all will end well! Written by
Totally refreshing and delightful music from Powell & Melchoir!
On a windy, cold March afternoon I loved hearing Lauritz Melchoir, one of the great tenors, a formidable fore-runner to today's tenors. He was able to relate, even in film, his great joy in life and music - a skill that would well serve many of today's artists.
Ms. Powell is as refreshing in this role as the day she performed it. Todays youth can learn from the standards of that era. Her natural talent has always been remarkable both as a singer and actress in later years.
This motion picture joins many of the delightful films of both Ms. Powell and Mr.Melchoir as a part of a heritage and history in the industry we must cherish.
It is good to be reminded in these difficult days in our world that we can still find joy in the moment and seize these pleasant opportunities to reflect on happier times.
