Maurice Elvey, the forgotten genius of the British film industry was off his feed when he made this unlikely and overwrought soap opera about a composer whose purpose in life is lost when the woman he loves dies and he loses the strength in his hands to play the piano fighting a duel with her husband. Twenty years later, he falls in love with her unidentified daughter, who has been transported to South America... but his nephew the surgeon who wants to operate on his hands so he can play again, also loves her.
Unfortunately, something went wrong here. While the visuals are perfect, as one would expect from someone like Elvey, the actors are way over the top in their performances. Given the plot and the performances, the movie is ludicrous, although still interesting to the eye.
