Yul Brynner plays a musical genius whose eccentricities are kept in check by his wife, until she discovers him "auditioning" a sultry young pianist. She walks out on him and his career promptly starts skidding. The temperamental maestro must again win his scorned wife. Written by
It is a shame that this film has not been released on video. It is a witty observation of the classical music world with Yul Brynner playing the part of a temperamental orchestra conductor. It was also Kay Kendall's last film
she was fatally ill when she made it and died shortly after it was
finished. She was a marvelous comedienne and was a great foil for Yul Brynner. Every classical music buff should see this film!
