Movie Info

Deep in My Heart is the MGM-ified biography of composer Sigmund Romberg, here played by José Ferrer. Evidently the scripters didn't feel that the life of Romberg (as set down by author Elliott Arnold, whose book was used as the film's basis) had enough drama to fill out two hours and ten minutes. As a result, the film is overstocked with guest stars, performing such Romberg standards as "One Alone," "Lover Come Back to Me," "When I Grow Too Old to Dream," "Will You Remember," and "Stout-Hearted Men." Among these celebrities are Ann Miller, Vic Damone, Jane Powell, Tony Martin, Cyd Charisse, Rosemary Clooney, and Gene Kelly, the latter performing a dance duet with his seldom-seen brother, Fred. For all the heady competition, it is José Ferrer who renders the most memorable production number: a one-man presentation of the Romberg musical comedy +Jazzboat, in which Ferrer assumes all the roles, from star Al Jolson's to the entire female chorus!

Critic Reviews for Deep in My Heart

All Critics (2)

Jose Ferrer, as operetta composer Sigmund Romberg, sings and clowns and emotionalizes with a chilly surface brilliance in this long, tune-packed musical biography.

The film clocks in at a staggering 132 minutes. Every single one of them can be felt tick-ticking by.

Audience Reviews for Deep in My Heart

Great music with some terrifically staged and performed numbers but has several heavy doses of schmaltz thrown in, particularly towards the ending.
