No pretensions. No tantrums. Marjorie Lawrence is a prima donna in the most professional sense of the term. She's a foremost Wagnerian, a soprano equal to the vocal and physical demands of the composer's oeuvre. And she's a beacon of triumph to anyone who fights back when personal tragedy strikes. The acclaimed tale of Lawrence's rise from outback girl to renowned diva and her subsequent battle against polio won the 1955 Academy Award® for Story and Screenplay. Best Actress Oscar® nominee Eleanor Parker portrays Lawrence, with the film's selection of glorious arias voiced by uncredited opera-legend-in-the-making Eileen Farrell. Glenn Ford and Roger Moore join Parker in a Melody to remember.
