Audience Reviews for Interrupted Melody

An okay tale of Marjorie Lawrence. The flight out of Australia and a very country type of existence to the world of America. It nonetheless doesn't seem to stick with you very long after seeing the film.

Very melodramatic biography of Marjorie Lawrence, but Eleanor Parker really does a terrific job in one of her best roles. A notch above the typical 1950's tearjerker. Good production, fine art direction, make-up and costumes.

It's a wonderfully done, well-told true story of an opera diva overcoming tragedy and still finding the spirit to encourage others. I don't know who dubs the singing for Eleanor Parker, but her voice is stunning!
