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.

Audience Reviews for Lady in the Dark

I have a copy of this film and...it's not all it could be. Had they stuck closer to the original stage script and kept ALL of the music (barely ANY of the original score is in the film!) it could have been something. The performances are all fine...it's what they did with the material that is the problem.
