Movie Info

Imagine a whole country where music is outlawed! Director Walter Forde and writer Marian Dix dreamed up such a horrendous state of affairs for Forbidden Music (original British title: Land Without Music). It seems that the citizens of the mythical duchy of Lucco spend so much time singing that they can't get their work done; therefore, the regent in charge, lovely duchess Diane Napier, decrees that her people will sing no more. Operatic revolutionary Richard Tauber changes the duchess' mind in romantic fashion--with the comic assistance of foreign correspondent Jimmy Durante, who seems ill at ease stalking about in this Ruritanian nonsense. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore
