After landing a job singing on the radio, Jane Froman marries musical accompanist Don Ross. Under Don's management, Jane rises to stardom and is invited to perform for the troops during World War II. En route, her plane goes down, leaving Jane with serious leg injuries. While on the mend, Jane begins a romance with John Burn, a wounded military pilot. She intends to return to singing, but with two men in her heart, life is ever more complicated. Written by
Saw this movie at the age of 16 and fell immediately in love with Susan Hayward. The plot seems a bit contrived now, although it is fairly faithful to Froman's physical problem and her contributions in entertaining the troops in WWII. The music is wonderful! "Get Happy" is still one of my favorite movie production numbers. By the way, it is not Hayward doing the singing, but Jane Froman herself whose voice was dubbed into the soundtrack.
