With A Song In My Heart is among the best of all Hollywood musicals of the 20th Century. Jane Froman's voice and life live on the the memory of all who either were fortunate enough to have known her and shared many of her performances and those who saw the movie and will never forget it. Ms. Froman's haunting contralto takes the viewer and listener back to a time when people's hearts were moved and the lyrics were remembered and hummed and sung long after they saw the movie. The story line, while glamorized somewhat for the screen, sticks pretty much to Jane Froman's real life story and Susan Hayward does a magnificent portrayal of Jane Froman. Fortunately, all of us are fortunate to know that it was Jane Froman who did the singing. A joy for all times and for all people who love The Great American Song Book. Fortunately, through the efforts of a group of people who are sponsoring a Jane Froman centennial in November, 2007, 20th Century Fox will be releasing With A Song In My Heart on DVD. It is long overdue.
