Movie Info

In this film, Grace Moore opens the film by losing a radio talent contest in New York. She disconsolately heads to Europe, where the best job she can come up with is singing in a restaurant. Here she is discovered by brilliant voice-teacher Tulio Carminatti, who carefully nurtures Moore.

Critic Reviews for One Night of Love

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

One Night of Love is basically an operatic film. It's the fact that the film is human, down to earth, that helps most.

An enjoyable light diversion, one worthy of the charm and talent of its stellar performer.

Top Critic

It's all rather cliche-ridden, but the film was a box office hit and began a brief period of Hollywood stardom for operatic diva Moore.

TV Guide

Worth watching as a sampler of the kind of musical that prevailed for a short time, the Hollywood operetta, featuring former Metropolitan Opera diva Grace Moore singing arias from Carmen and Madame Butterfly alongside more popular tunes by Kahn and others

Once you got over the thrill of seeing real opera sung onscreen, you get tired of the tired story.

Audience Reviews for One Night of Love

This film is an attempt to bring opera to the big screen..with a bit of a lame story line around it. It took a few decades but the Metropolitan Opera has the best translation to the big screen. This one doesn't even come close.

It's a hidden gem that brings us to a period when Opera was almost magical in movies. Grace Moore is simply wonderful and charming in this flick.
