Irene Dunne and Richard Dix team up in this exhilarating hybrid of musical and Western adventure set in Australia in 1874. Aspiring opera singer Hilda Bouverie (Dunne) is languishing at the home of her super-rich guardian (played by the hilarious Mary Boland) when she unwittingly falls for the mysterious bandit Stingaree (Dix). Disguised as a well-known composer and inspired by Hilda's mesmerizing voice, Stingaree gifts Hilda with one of his own compositions-- "Tonight is Mine"-- which subsequently puts her on the path to international fame. Of course, Stingaree captures Hilda's heart in the process. This boisterous film was Dunne's first showcase as a singer, and features several songs including "Stingaree Ballad," "Once You're Mine," and the ubiquitous "Tonight is Mine." Though it stands out as one of the more unusual items in director William Wellman's filmography, Stingaree was met with favorable reviews: The New York Times commented that the movie's "impossible happenings are highly entertaining." Stingaree is one of six RKO films of the 1930s previously thought "lost" but rediscovered and restored by TCM, and is now available on home video for the first time.
