The story of star radio singer and entertainer Jane Froman is the sort of stuff Hollywood would have gladly made up had not reality beaten them to it. Hayward was Froman's choice for the lead (although the singer dubbed her own songs) in this rags-to-riches story, capped by a near-fatal aircrash during WWII, a tough fight-back from illness, and a big finale that has Froman out entertaining the troops again. Hideously schmaltzy and Hayward's not exactly anyone's idea of musical sparkle. But what songs! 'Blue Moon', 'Give My Regards to Broadway', 'Embraceable You', 'Get Happy'. Alfred Newman won an Oscar for musical direction.
