Time Out says

Full-tilt Warner Brothers melodrama: slum kid Garfield rises to concert pitch as a classical violinist (dubbed by Isaac Stern) under the far from disinterested patronage of wealthy/lonely/bottle-happy/yearning socialite Crawford, and amid ludicrously intense shoulder-chip, tear-jerk sparrings, has to choose between his bow and her heartstrings. Levant plays resident cynic/voice of conscience from the piano stool; Clifford Odets, no less, contributes to the adaptation of Fannie Hurst's madcap tushery.

J. Nelson Happy

A great film for music lovers and Joan Crawford. Isaac Stern plays the sound track wonderfully, and this may be the best Joan Crawford moview of all, period. Oscar Levant is great as a wisecracking concert pianist, who plays very well indeed. Rather a unique artist; funny, good at his role, and a great musician. Plot leaves something to be desired, but probably was the only way to pack audiances in to a movie about classical music.
