Watch the Promo!

This 1947 Technicolor production from Universal Pictures is a film about the early years of composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, referred to as “Nicky” in the trailer. It’s a camp classic emblazoned with the tagline, “So Lavish, So Gay” (I kid you not!), and featuring the infamous “whip duel.” Yvonne de Carlo stars, with Jean-Pierre Aumont as the sailor “Nicky,” who also, apparently, composes, although you wouldn’t know it from this trailer. Aumont must have had enough of Hollywood with this picture because he returned to Europe to make films right after this.

Rhapsody in Blue (1945) Trailer

Rhapsody in Blue

The jubilant story of George Gershwin.

Rhapsody in Blue (1945) is a fictionalized screen biography of the American composer and musician George Gershwin (September 26, 1898 – July 11, 1937) released by Warner Brothers.

Watch the Promo!

Rhapsody in Blue is a story that is as enchanting as the music of its central character, the legendary George Gershwin. Robert Alda plays the talented composer in this moving tribute to one of America's premier musical artists. Although it was intended that the Gershwins' eldest son, Ira, take piano lessons, it was his younger brother George who displayed a real talent for music. Following years of practice and an assortment of jobs, George worked his way from a music hall pianist to a Tin Pin Alley "song plugger." Gershwin experienced his first great success with "Swanee" (sung in the film by the man who made it famous, the inimitable Al Jolson). Despite his ensuing accomplishments with hit songs and stage successes, the musical genius yearned for something greater -- to create unique American music, combining the European classics and popular songs. In addition to its inspirational story, Rhapsody in Blue is musically uplifting, featuring a two hour feast of classic Gershwin.
