The movie is one of Tyrone Power's most popular of the 1950's, as well as one of the most popular movies that came out in 1956.
Newsweek reviewed: "A good deal of Duchin's musical spirit is to be encountered in this movie, ostensibly based on his life. Tyrone Power plays Duchin and does not look utterly unlike him, while the piano is handled by Carmen Cavallaro whose style is similar to Eddy's, if flossier." The picture to the left is a photo of the real Eddy Duchin. He is on the far right of the picture, and his wife, Chiquita, is on the far left.
