Quotes

Jane Froman: [singing] On the gay white way, Invite your girlie to the gay white way, It's always early for the lights are glowing, Wine is flowing, They do a lot of Romeoing, On the gay white way, It's so exciting that the night turns to day, And every little miss likes a little mischief.
Male Chorus: On the gay, gay, gay, gay, gay white way, It's so exciting that the night turns to day
Jane Froman: And every little miss wants a little bliss, Needs a little kiss, Loves a little mischief
Jane FromanMale Chorus: On the gay - white - way!

Very Entertaining Musical Biography !
13 January 2002 | by olddiscsSee all my reviews

Susan Hayward was at her best in this very sympathetic role portraying singer Jane Froman.... She looked beautiful throughout the entire production, even during the plane crash sequence....N o one lip synched better than Hayward !(also synched in Ill Cry Tomorrow, although might have done some of her vocalizing there.)...beautiful heartwarming story, how accurate,? will never know, it was an entertainment... and it entertained... The soundtrack/score is exceptional, especially the Americana medley...Thelma Ritter once again is a scene stealer... beautiful blue eyed Rory Calhoun, plays and looks his part well, and Robert Wagner was also a standout, in a minor, but moving role.. Why is this no longer available on Video?? It hasnt been for over 20 years... Thanks to AMC, Ive seen it again afew times. and luckily I do have the soundtrack lp on Vinyl....Hayward fans incl. myself should demand this film to be re-issued on Video & DVD !!!!
