Great music, great prairie period piece, great Rebecca Jenkins
29 November 2004 | by (Calgary, AB) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie when I first saw it, and I love it still.

Rebecca Jenkins is simply phenomenal as a real-life singer in this movie, and as an actor too. You watch her move from a war-widow to a touring jazz star, slowly and reluctantly abandoning her old life. It's moving and it's hard to stop watching.

The music is simply fabulous. George Blondheim put together a classic 40's dance band sound that I just love. The soundtrack CD is still a favourite 15 years later.

And the scenery-- well, it's outstanding.

I wish they'd release this one on DVD so I can see it in all it's glory.
