| Dorn's character was simply too hateful to make the film work well.
The Dutch actor Philip Dorn plays a concert maestro, Leopold Goronoff, in this film. He's reputed to be one of the greatest pianists of his age....and he definitely has the ego for this...and then some! An old friend convinces Goronoff to take on a student and Myra (Catherine McLeod) is amazing. Eventually, she has her debut and Goronoff is angry because she is so good...perhaps better than him! What a putz! Despite this, Myra is in love with her mentor....and what chance does her childhood friend, George, have with her?

There are several problems with the film, though on balance the movie isn't bad. There are too many long and intense piano pieces and editing them down a bit or allowing for some lighter classical pieces would have helped the film. Additionally, Dorn's character is simply too awful to care about him and there is no reason for Myra to care about this jerk..none.. It's also very slow and the film doesn't seem to know when to end. On the plus side, McLeod is amazing on the piano, the Technicolor is amazingly good and the basic story is quite sound.
