One Night of Love is very well scored, well-acted and well shot, but it's a very dated musical which is an acquired taste in its opera numbers. The story is also standard and nothing special. It's a passable, but dated genre film which certainly did not deserve to receive six Oscar nominations.
The best musical movie ever made!
Opera and Grace Moore fans will rate it five stars. Everyone else will be bored to tears. It succeeded in 1934 because audio recording technology was able to capture operatic stars much better than before, and the method of recording was a film making technological advancement. In short, AMPAS voters were wow'ed by this. Absent that, the movie has nothing to offer. The extremely thin story was created to feature Grace Moore and her operatic singing.
An opera lover's dream, with Grace Moore, the film,and the title song all achieving hit status.
ok vehicle for opera star grace moore
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.
Grace Moore made two films for MGM that missed, but MGM kept her very matronly. Columbia saw Grace as sexy and let her be herself. Some people say that the film is cliche' ridden, but this was 1934 and the cliche's came after this film for the most part. Moore, Barrie, Talbot and Carmenatti are full of fun and it's a timeless film you'll want to experience. Moore was up for an Academy Award for this film and it won two awards for music.
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.
Sweet movie starring Grace Moore as an aspiring opera singer who moves to Italy, catches the eye of a maestro, and becomes his student (and perhaps something else). It's predictable but it's got some nice performances, particularly from Moore who has a great voice. Good songs (since they're all famous opera songs) and this also is the winner of the first Oscar for Best Score, even a lot of the music is, again, from famous operas. Anyway, it's a quick and enjoyable film.

<b><i>"One night of love/When two hearts are one, a night to have and hold/When love is gone and starlight grows cold..."</b></i> Mary Barrett is an aspiring Opera singer who is taken under the wings of a famous operatic maestro, Guilio Monterverdi. After spending endless working hours together and arguing, their relationship develops into love. But jealousy and misunderstandings prevent Mary and Guilio from acknowledging their true feelings. Released on September 15, 1934, <i>One Night Of Love</i> was directed by Victor Schertzinger and was the first film to win an Oscar for Best Music Score (for composer Louis Silvers) when this category was introduced. It recently appealed to me through a recent television broadcast when I was looking for good black and white movies for me to watch at the moment, although I was unsure if I was gonna see it at all. But it looks like I've gone through a fine viewing experience. :) I find the storyline well structured, although it was a little slow for me, for its drama and tension between the two lovers throughout. Starring in their finest of their acting performances include Grace Moore who sang in a pleasant voice even in the titular track and ad Tullio Carminatti whose Monteverdi character was brutal and arrogant in his personality.

Overall, I can say that <i>One Night Of Love</i> is a very good love story happening on, of course, one night to remember. It'll be worth a watch for anyone interested filmed in the old black and white picture quality.
