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.

A story that has inspired many
2 October 2004 | by (Londonderry, Vermont) – See all my reviews

Susan Hayward portrays superbly the beautiful and courageous Jane Froman in this moving biographical story of the talented singer who suffered severe physical injuries when her plane crashed on a USO tour during World War II, yet who rose to the top again through her determination and faith. Her struggle greatly influenced the morale of the war wounded, as well as an entire generation of teenagers, myself included, when this movie first appeared in 1952. Today there is a resurgence of interest in the singer and her classically trained voice, considered one of the best of her time. This movie is an excellent record of Jane Froman's own voice, as it is her voice on the soundtrack, singing 26 songs representing the finest songwriters of the day.
