Trivia

Saranac Lake, New York was known for the "Cure" for tuberculous, so when Romberg goes up there, is the movie suggesting that he or others that he met up there were curing from the disease. See more »

Goofs

'Frau Mueller' (portrayed by Helen Traubel) is a fictional character created by MGM writers, and bears no resemblance to any real person with whom Romberg was ever involved; Romberg's Manager, Townsend, portrayed by Paul Stewart, and two associates, Judson and Butterfield, portrayed by Jim Backus and Douglas Fowley are also fictional, as also is the show they are supposedly writing, referred to as "Jazzadoo".

Quotes

Dorothy Donnelly: You have talent. That's very rare in the theater.
Sigmund Romberg: You have a warm smile. That's even rarer.

(Almost) completely forgotten Broadway musical genius !
5 April 2006 | by gloandwarSee all my reviews

If you doubt the summary comment, ask a few of your friends under the age of 55 if they've heard of Sigmund Romberg (Sigmund who)? Since I took piano lessons as a kid - I did - yet when I stumbled upon this film in my local library I thought "when did this come out" (I was in the service overseas at the time). I was totally blown away by the musical score and the performances. By the way, this is about the only musical film I've seen structured as a Broadway musical play - overture through finale. The last number of the first act, so the speak, was Jane Powell and Vic Damone singing "Will you Remember" from "Maytime". This show was such a success a second company opened across the street - only time in Broadway history!

See for yourself, then try to find "The Student Prince" and watch that - and listen. He composed about 600 or 700 songs for Broadway. By the way, did you know Gene Kelly had a song and dance man brother? You'll see them together the only time in "Deep in my Heart"
