If you doubt the summary comment, ask a few of your friends under the age of 55 if they've heard of Sigmund Romberg (Sigmund who)? Since I took piano lessons as a kid - I did - yet when I stumbled upon this film in my local library I thought "when did this come out" (I was in the service overseas at the time). I was totally blown away by the musical score and the performances. By the way, this is about the only musical film I've seen structured as a Broadway musical play - overture through finale. The last number of the first act, so the speak, was Jane Powell and Vic Damone singing "Will you Remember" from "Maytime". This show was such a success a second company opened across the street
only time in Broadway history!
See for yourself, then try to find "The Student Prince" and watch that
and listen. He composed about 600 or 700 songs for Broadway. By the
way, did you know Gene Kelly had a song and dance man brother? You'll see them together the only time in "Deep in my Heart"
