Trivia

In 1952, there was not a soundtrack album released. For a replacement, Jane Froman rerecorded most of the film score at Capitol Records, resulting in a 10-inch LP which topped the "Billboard" album chart. When Capitol expanded the LP into a 12-inch disc in 1955, two standards from the movie were added: "That Old Feeling" (music and lyrics by Sammy Fain and Lew Brown), and "I'm Through with Love" (music by Matty Malneck and Fud Livingston, lyrics by Gus Kahn). Ultimately, Jane Froman recorded several versions of the Rodgers and Hart title song: the voice-over renditions in three film scenes, the finale of her studio album, and a single with a different arrangement, done at a Capitol session which also produced the flip side, another remade ballad from the movie and the LP, Jane's "Billboard"-placing "I'll Walk Alone" (music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Sammy Cahn).

Musical biography of a great singer
3 October 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

If for no other reason than the extraordinary soundtrack, 20th Century Fox should have already released "With A Song in My Heart" on DVD/VHS. With music written by such diverse composers as Rodgers & Hart; Sammy Fain; Harold Arlen, Peggy Lee, Vincent Youmans, George & Ira Gershwin; Arthur Schwartz Frank Loesser; Jule Stein & Sammy Cahn,and a medley of classic "Americana" songs, it is a musical delight. The vocals, performed by Susan Hayward, but dubbed by Jane Froman, are flawless.

Susan Hayward does a superb job as do David Wayne, Thelma Ritter, and a marvelous supporting cast, including Robert Wagner, Max Showalter and Una Merkle. Only Rory Calhoun seems wooden. It is a story of grit and determination that deserves an audience 50 years later.
