Critic Reviews for Carnegie Hall

All Critics (4)

Brilliant visual style meets great music in one of the little known gems of the 1940's.

Classic Film and Television

70-odd minutes worth of dismal drama and 60-odd minutes of sometimes breathtaking performances from some of the most important names in classical music of that era.

The dialogue is unintentionally funny.

Audience Reviews for Carnegie Hall

The story has whiskers, although Marsha Hunt gives it some dignity, but what a great chance to see and heard a wide spectrum of music and musicians of the time.
