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.

Long-winded but worth the wait...
14 November 2000 | by Viewers AnonymousSee all my reviews

The music is, of course, the reason to watch this movie. Jose Ferrer does an admirable job of portraying the composer Sigmund Romberg, and an all-star cast performs some of Romberg's tunes.

Especially noteworthy is Rosemary Clooney, singing, most appropriately, the song "Mr. and Mrs." with her then-husband, Ferrer. "Deep in My Heart" was their only on-screen performance together.

Other memorable moments feature brothers Fred and Gene Kelly dancing and Ferrer performing a one-man show. Altogether, the film is long and somewhat slow but the music makes it worth watching.
