Storyline

Supported avidly by his mother and more reluctantly at first by his father, a working-class Austrian boy joins the Vienna Choirboys, where he proves to be unusually talented. The standard initiation ordeals which new boys must endure at the hands of their seniors are intensified in his case because he has aroused the jealousy of Peter, the head chorister, by singing a solo which Peter had long sung himself. The fact is that Peter's voice is breaking, and with a broken voice often comes a broken heart. But, encouraged by the director and all the boys, Peter begins to develop in a new role as composer and conductor. Written by Paul Emmons <pemmons@wcupa.edu>

This movie is the best I've seen for a childrens' comedy!!!
28 March 1999 | by (Mingo Junction, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I think this movie was a great production by Walt Disney Pictures. Vincent Winter was a great Tony Fiala. I'm just sorry to hear that he died not too long ago in Surry, England November 2, 1998. He really warmed my heart with his wonderful voice and his great talent of acting. Sean Scully (I) played a great Peter Shaifer. I think that everyone who attempted the production for this movie should be commended for the excellent job they did 37 years ago! Congratulations to all of you who made this movie a great success.
