Trivia

The same green off-the-shoulder blouse (with black filigree pattern) that Susan Hayward wears while singing "The Right Kind" (music by Lionel Newman, and Charles Henderson, lyrics by Don George) in a nightclub number was later worn by Marilyn Monroe in Bus Stop (1956), produced by the same studio, Twentieth Century-Fox.

Heartwarming and awe-inspiring
29 April 2004 | by (Tennessee, USA) – See all my reviews

As a fan and friend of the late Jane Froman, I found the film to be as close to Ms. Froman's life as possible. Susan Hayward learned Ms. Froman's poise and mannerisms directly from her and did an amazing job both in acting and lipsinking Ms. Froman's songs. Jane Froman's talent and courage inspired many persons all over the world and her legacy of music lives on through the movie "With A Song In My Heart" and through her music which is now surfacing to a new generation. Through her generosity and giving spirit, talented music students were able to continue their studies with scholarships, and emotionally challenged children benefited from the funds raised by Jane Froman's fan club. I don't understand why the movie "With A Song In My Heart" has not been released on VHS or DVD, but I think the movie should at least be shown more often on PBS (not everyone can afford cable). The movie lifts many a heavy heart and is first class entertainment.
