Small town Kansas girl, Lily James, is the latest model working for the Thomas Callaway Agency in New York City. Despite her small town roots, Lily is street-wise because of her tough growing up experiences, and as such she is a good judge of character. She believes she can escape her troubles through professional success. Because of her hard work ethic, she quickly does rise to the top of her profession. She attracts the attention of Steve Harleigh, a wealthy copper mine owner. Despite they both knowing that nothing can come between them, they fall in love. The issues are that he lives and works in Montana, and that he is already married. Steve feels guilty about his marital infidelity as his wife, Nora, is physically disabled from a car accident in which he was the cause. Lily has to decide if her own happiness is worth destroying the life of a woman - an invalid - she's never met. Written by
The haunting theme music here by Bronislau Kaper was reused two years later in MGM's _Invitation (1952)_, and under the title Invitation became an enduring jazz standard, especially associated with tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. See more »
Lily James appears as "Top Model" on the cover of a Life magazine being read by Jim Leversoe. The scene immediately dissolves to the cover of the same Life magazine in a plane with Steve Harleigh, but the cover shot of the Life magazine on the plane is an entirely different pose (but the same outfit and hairdo).

I am extremely interested in getting information concerning the theme music that was played throughout the movie "A Life of Her Own". It was mostly orchestral, but also piano in cocktail lounge settings. Most important to me would be to learn the title of this song. In addition, I would like to know if any of the original score or soundtrack is available for purchase. In my opinion this unusual and haunting theme music made a rather forgettable movie an unforgettable movie for me. If you do not have any information that I am interested in , I would appreciate any direction I might take to obtain this theme music. I might add that I have just recently accessed your web site, and was impressed with the depth of information available.
