Product Description

Susan Hayward, Thelma Ritter. Badly injured in a plane crash, a singer tries to make a comeback-and to sort out her romantic troubles-in this compelling drama based on the life of Jane Froman. 1952/color/117 min/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

From radio star to wartime inspiration, the life of singer Jane Froman (the incomparable Susan Hayward) was made for the silver screen. The opening titles proclaim it "The story of a girl and the story of a voice. The girl is Jane Froman, the voice is her own" (Froman provided Hayward's vocals). Born in Missouri, the contralto finds fame in Cincinnati before conquering Chicago, New York--and songwriter Don Ross (David Wayne), her first husband. When her plane crashes en route to a USO engagement, Froman risks losing her legs, and fears she'll never perform again. In the hospital, she bonds with Pilot John Burn (Rory Calhoun) and wise-cracking nurse Clancy (All About Eve's Thelma Ritter). In the process, she falls for Burn and returns to the stage. With a Song in My Heart follows the basic biopic template--rise, fall, and resurrection--but Technicolor maestro Walter Lang (The King and I) throws in a few surprises, like narration by the supporting cast and an appearance by a handsome young Robert Wagner as a shell-shocked paratrooper. He also showcases an array of glittering gowns and a myriad of musical numbers, including Rodgers and Hart's stirring title track. Two featurettes and an interview with Burn reveal that Froman's life was even more difficult than that of her fictional counterpart. Though she marks an exception among Hayward's edgy on-screen personas--notably her Academy Award-winning convict in I Want to Live!--the auburn-haired actress invests the vocalist with innate decency and persuasive talent. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This movie has never been released in ANY format so this is a cause for celebration for this highly sought after flick. Many fine reviews have already preceded mine (considering it is not yet available) so I will not rehash the plot but give what I hope will be interesting insights into the making of this fine film.

Susan during her contract with FOX were her most visible superstardom years and it has always struck me a bit odd little has been released by the studio considering a quarter of their budget was wrapped up in her movies alone. She was the only star at Grauman's to place her hands, footprints and signature in cement embedded in gold dust. Hayward's famous long red tresses were insured for a million dollars and could only be trimmed a half inch. She was allowed to have it cut shoulder length since she bore some resemblence to Jane Froman. She spent hours in the recording booth watching Froman sing the songs used on the soundtrack, noting her every gesture and movement which explains why her lip syncing job is one of the best on celluloid. Her lavish wardrobe was not for glamor but character, as Froman was voted consistently one of the top 10 best dressed women of her time. Her elaborate dance routines took weeks of rehearsal and during one shot, her breast was flashed during a daily rush and and had to be reshot. A young Bob Wagner credits his success to Hayward for taking him under her wing. This was his first major film albeit a small part and he had to cry in one scene while Hayward was singing which he found difficult to execute. Hayward deliberately had the camers focused on the back of her head during the scene as she prompted him to tears. In the 70's he remarked on THE TONIGHT SHOW what a tremendous help she was to a young struggling actor.

Format: DVD
"With a Song in My Heart" is one of those films that has never been released on VHS or DVD. It's about time 20th Century-Fox plans to release it to coordinate with what would have been Jane Froman's 100th birthday. The film features a superb performance by Susan Hayward as Froman, who lip synchs to Froman's actual singing flawlessly. The script is standard Hollywood biopic, but the music is absolutely terrific, from Rodgers & Hart's "Blue Moon" to an elaborate production number of the title song to a rousing medley of patriotic and state songs. A new biography of Froman, "Say It With Music: The Life & Legacy of Jane Froman," fills in the gaps the movie doesn't cover and traces Froman's life from her return to performing in the States to her TV show of the 1950's to her years of retirement in Columbia, Missouri. Other songs in the film include "I'm Thru With Love," "Embraceable You," "The Right Kind," "They're Either Too Young or Too Old," "On the Gay White Way," and "That Old Feeling."

I'm jumping the gun; this film won't be available for another three months, but I honestly felt "With A Song In My Heart" would never be released in any format, this November release being its first. My understanding was that there were so many obstacles created by the myriad of songs and composers used throughout the film that being able to one day own this film might be an impossibility. I saw this movie in l952 with my grandmother. I was nine years old. I don't know that I knew who Susan Hayward was at the time (though I loved movie magazines) and I certainly didn't know who Jane Froman was. Well, the movie has remained, all of these years later, one of my favorites; I've only been able to catch it on AMC, Turner, or HBO or Showtime from time to time. The film, all of these years later, remains fresh and affecting; Susan Hayward's performance is a classic, the music has become part of our American heritage, the costumes still stun, and this deeply affecting musical biography will only help to reignite interest in Miss Hayward and Miss Froman. I can't wait to order my copy!

Without a doubt, this is the best musical biography ever made! Susan Hayward worked closely with Jane Froman, studying her gestures, delivery, and style. The two became close friends in the course of the project. The result is a seamless lip-synching of songs by Hayward over the most perfect mezzo voice of Ms. Froman. (The voice is an instrument with perfect vibrato.)

Thelma Ritter was nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress and delivers a tremendous performance as Nurse Clancey. She was a very special actress!

The combination of songs from a variety of composers is stellar. The dance production for "With a Song in My Heart" is gorgeous and simply soars! The strings are marvelous, and the male dance lead is brilliant.

I thought I was destined to enjoy this classic only on a grainy VHS recording made from a TV broadcast. Thank goodness for a restored DVD! I can hardly wait for my copy to arrive. Then I, too, will have a song in MY heart!

I first saw "With a Song in my Heart" when I was 12 years old. I was so enthralled by Jane Froman's voice and her story that I saw the movie 14 times. The movie was my first introduction to the beautiful old standards such as Blue Moon, Tea for Two, Embraceable You, and I'll Walk Alone. I have been a fan of Jane Froman's since 1952 and have only had the opportunity to see the movie on a video that I recorded from the TV set. I look forward to the release of the movie on DVD so that I can enjoy a professional version of this inspiring movie.
