"Before Marta (aka Martha) Eggerth went to star in two Judy Garland pictures For Me and my Gal and Presenting Lily Mars, she starred in musicals in her homeland. Unlike the MGM movies here she plays a sweet girl and not an obnoxious one.
Two singers who aspire to make it in opera meet. The man manages to get to the top of the field while the girl unbeknownst to him is dying. This manages to incorporate a modern day seeting with a similar plot and music of La Boheme. It seems like the subtitles are picked and chosen. But I still give kudos to Allegro for releasing films like these. A year later after this movie Jan Kiepura and Marta married."
