It exhibits little of the technical ingenuity which the Hitchcock name might lead us to expect. But it does not diminish the loveliness of "The Blue Danube" and it suspires amiably against its nineteenth century appointments.
Dull costume drama directed by a young Alfred Hitchcock during what he has called "the lowest ebb" of his career.
This anomaly of a musical biopic is one of Hitchcock's few weak films that even he did not like.
The perception of it as a fumbled trifle is dismissed as soon as Hitchcock lays out the artist's dilemma, the kind that would keep hounding him: "Either you're a musician, or a confectioner."
A soppy, ineffectual musical.
A Brit musical. By Alfred Hitchcock, no less? Yes, a leap, I know, but the story about how a younger Strauss was inhibited by the elder does have its merits, the main of which is the triumphant reveal of the Blue Danube to its Austrian audience for the first time. There are no surprises, true, but Hitchcock manages to keep the fluff to a minimum, given the genre.
