Excellent biographical musical
29 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film many years ago and would love to see it again. I also wish it were available in DVD. It is the true story of Grace Moore, who was born in Tennessee in 1898. She was a singer of Broadway musicals, an opera star, and a lovely lady Florenz Ziegfeld described as "the most beautiful woman in the world." Tragically, Miss Moore was killed in a plane crash in Copenhagen, Denmark, in January 1947. Also on board was a member of the Danish royal family. In the nearly six decades after her death, Miss Moore's talent lives on in the recordings of her music.

I hope this film will be appreciated by today's young people and that they will learn valuable lessons from it.
