Movie Info

With a Song in My Heart is the story of popular 1930s songstress Jane Froman, here portrayed by Susan Hayward. We first see Ms. Froman as a humble staff singer at a Cincinnati radio stations, but it doesn't take her long to rise to the uppermost rungs of network radio fame. Jane gratefully marries her agent (David Wayne), but soon both realize they're not truly in love. While touring with the USO during World War II, Jane is in a plane crash, which severely injures her. She nonetheless valiantly makes a professional comeback, and begins a relationship with the pilot (Rory Calhoun) who rescued her. Jane Froman herself provided the vocals for With a Song in My Heart, with Susan Hayward doing a topnotch miming job. Watch for Robert Wagner in his starmaking cameo as a shell-shocked GI.

Audience Reviews for With a Song in My Heart

Susan Hayward was nominated for an Oscar for her performance as radio sweetheart Jane Froman (who actually voice-dubbed for Hayward); the screenplay is a bit mushy, but the musical scenes are terrific.

A tad bit overly sentimental. Susan Hayward cannot be blamed and makes the most of a contrived story.

Super Reviewer

Susan Hayward does an amazing job as Jane Froman. This is her picture all the way. Very well made, good costumes, excellent music score. Always interesting and the characters are very well defined.
