A movie matchup for the ages starts here. This first of five teamings of velvet-voiced Irene Dunne and composer Jerome Kern is a lushly tuneful Gay Nineties musical about the trials of Adeline Schmidt (Dunne), a singer who could rise from headlining at her fathers Hoboken beer garden to starring on Broadway if she can straighten out her love life. Will she choose the dashing Spanish-American war hero backing her show (Louis Calhern) or the brash tunesmith (Donald Woods) whos all work and no romance? Add to those a spiteful diva (Winifred Shaw) threatening to lower the curtain via war espionage and show sabotage. More vital than the lightweight plot is the lighter-than-air score of this screen version of Show Boat collaborators Kern and Oscar Hammerstein IIs 1929 Broadway show, including songs Dunne hits out of the park: Here Am I, Lonely Feet, We Were So Young, the ravishing Why Was I Born? and Dont Ever Leave Me. As directed by Mervyn LeRoy and lovingly orchestrated by Ray Heindorf, SweetAdeline wont ever leave you.
