Description
Rhapsody in Blue is a story that is as enchanting as the music of its central character, the legendary George Gershwin. Robert Alda plays the talented composer in this moving tribute to one of America’s premier musical artists. Although it was intended that the Gershwins’ eldest son, Ira, take piano lessons, it was his younger brother George who displayed a real talent for music. Following years of practice and an assortment of jobs, George worked his way from a music hall pianist to a Tin Pin Alley “song plugger.” Gershwin experienced his first great success with “Swanee” (sung in the film by the man who made it famous, the inimitable Al Jolson). Despite his ensuing accomplishments with hit songs and stage successes, the musical genius yearned for something greater – to create unique American music, combining the European classics and popular songs. In addition to its inspirational story, Rhapsody in Blue is musically uplifting, featuring a two hour feast of classic Gershwin.

      I watched the movie and I enjoyed it. I love movies from Late 30's and 40's I believe the movies then were a lot more entertaining.
      I enjoy classical music. I watch TCM on a regular basis...

        anyone who loves the music of Gershwin and who doesn't should own this film. Great for music majors in college. Loved the cast of people who played themselves such as Al Jolson, Walter Damarosch, George White etc

            Gershwin and his music, especially the Rhapsody In Blue, have been favorites of mine for a long time. This movie brings it together with a fine cast, good presentation of his music, and a very entertaining movie that we'll watch many times.
