Overview

Boasting Tony Martin and Rita Hayworth and bandleader Andre Kostelanitz as its leading players, it's surprising that Music in My Heart isn't better than it is.

She likewise falls in love with him, even though she's scheduled to marry millionaire Charles Gardner (Alan Mowbray).

Overview

Boasting Tony Martin and Rita Hayworth and bandleader Andre Kostelanitz as its leading players, it's surprising that Music in My Heart isn't better than it is. Martin plays European-born actor Robert Gregory, who while rehearsing for a Broadway musical falls in love with chorine Patricia O'Malley (Rita Hayworth). She likewise falls in love with him, even though she's scheduled to marry millionaire Charles Gardner (Alan Mowbray). The relationship is endangered when Gregory faces deportation to his own country, but baton-wieldig Kostelanitz comes to the rescue by making Gregory a radio singing sensation. Talented child actress Edith Fellows, who in previous films had been given top billing over Rita Hayworth, is somewhat wasted in the role of Rita's kid sister. Of the film's six songs, "It's a Blue World" is the singular highlight.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Plot didn't have to count for much in a musical film in 1940, as evidenced by Music in My Heart. Screenwriter James Edward Grant certainly doesn't seem to have taken it very seriously, never making any real attempt at bringing reality to the basic premise. This lack of credibility mitigates some of the fun of Music, as does the fact that the Robert Wright and George Forrest score is fairly hum-drum, with only "It's a Blue World" and to a lesser degree "Pulchinello" rising above average. Fortunately, director Joseph Santley treats the material as a lark, not worrying about its lack of reality, and concentrating instead on making sure that the pace is lively, the characterizations on target and the atmosphere frothy. He is helped by a cast that brings a great deal more commitment to the project than it deserves. Tony Martin is likeable and engaging in the lead role, although he's not quite actor enough to pull off this particular charade. Rita Hayworth is pure gold in this relatively early starring role. Although she's given very little to do musically, she uses her rare charisma and innate desirability to delightful effect. Eric Blore and Alan Mowbray make a fine comic team, and the rest of the supporting cast is dependable and diverting.
