Not long ago someone brought up movies about classical music.

Turner Classic Movies is showing three movies tomorrow night, 11/19. They have been featuring guests who bring some of their favorite movies to share. Tomorrow night is Renee Fleming. It's been interesting to see of few of the guests talk about why they love a certain film. I am looking forward to hearing Renee talk about these films:

(All are EASTERN time)

The Great Waltz from 1938. I have heard this is quite a good film. It's about Johann Strauss and focuses on his relationship with his wife. Johann Strauss and Brahms were good friends - which ties into next film (8 p.m. Eastern)

Song of Love (1947) - w/ Hepburn as Clara Schumann, Paul Henreid as Robert Schumann and Robert Walker as Johannes Brahms. I have seen bits and pieces of this film and clips, but have never watched the whole film. I am really looking forward to it. (10 p.m. Eastern)

Lastly is Interrupted Melody from 1955 starring Eleanor Parker as the great Australian soprano Marjorie Laurence, who fought a heroic battle against polio.
Also stars Glenn Ford and a very young Roger Moore. (12:15 a.m.)

Just thought I would pass that along to any interested movie watchers. Song of Love was highly recommended by many on this board, as I recall.

Good tips - though no use to me unfortunately \:\(
I've seen The Great Waltz (many years ago) and from memory thought it was a bit corny, but I rather like corny now so wouldn't mind seeing it again.
Interrupted Melody I haven't seen, but I've read the book (of the same name).
Would like to see Song of Love.
What I'm really waiting to see here again is A Song to Remember (bio flick of Chopin, with Paul Muni, Cornel Wilde, Merle Oberon) - described somewhere as "a wild piece of gorgeous junk" \:\) but it has some sentimental value for me, as it helped me decide to really take the piano seriously at age 14 (blood-spattered keyboard and all!).

Try Ebay. DVD's of A Song to Remember are not hard to find.
Slow down and do it right.

Thanks for the heads-up. I really enjoyed the Song of Love. The Strauss movie was too corny for my taste but at least I got to check it out.

On the Song of Love, does anyone know the name of the piece that Schumann played for Clara in their flat after the marriage? Also, the name of the slow piece that Brahms played at the New Year's Eve party?
