Did You Know?

The film was released containing an extremely brief exposure of Susan Hayward's left breast. This occurs during an overhead long shot of a lavish dance number, when the actress' strapless gown very briefly separates from her bosom. The moment was subsequently excised from some--but not all--prints in release.See more »

Musical biography of a great singer, 3 October 2004
Author: babuon from New York, NY

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.
