Lady In the Dark (1944)
Movie InfoBefore coming to the big screen, Lady in the Dark was a major Broadway musical from Moss Hart featuring many tasty tunes from songsmiths Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin. Unfortunately what was fabulous on stage lost something in its translation to the screen. It did not help that the film producers changed the original cast and cut out some of the play's best songs. Despite these flaws, the film was upbeat and colorful enough to buoy the flagging spirits of wartime Americans; in this regard the film was a success. The story centers on a lady publisher who what with her career's many demands and the stress of maintaining relationships with three men finds herself near a complete breakdown.
