Interrupted Melody

The movie Interrupted Melody from 1955 is one of my father's favorites. It makes him very nostalgic and emotional, and he loves the beautiful opera singing done on behalf of Marjorie Lawrence's character. Since my dad is visiting, we watched it last night. This is an easy introduction to some of opera's greatest female arias and a story of a frustrating marriage that eventually turns out well for the couple. One thing that makes the movie even more enjoyable to watch is that the main character is played by Eleanor Parker, best know for playing the Baroness in the The Sound of Music movie.
