  • Professor Elsner (Paul Muni) relays to Chopin the message from Constantia (Nina Foch) asking for support to get the Polish uprisers, once friends of Chopin, out of jail. At first, Chopin is noncommital. Then he has a change of heart and asks Louis Pleyel (George Coulouris) to arrange for a European tour with all the concert proceeds to go to Elsner. George Sand (Merle Oberon) is adamantly against it, but Chopin perseveres, although he gets weaker and weaker with each passing concert. At his last concert in Pleyel Hall in Paris, he collapses and takes to his sickbed. Elsner takes the message to Sand that Chopin is dying and is asking for her, but she chooses not to see him.
