Product Notes

Rhapsody in Blue is a story that is as enchanting as the music of it's 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 Gershwin's' 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 it's inspirational story, Rhapsody in Blue is musically uplifting, featuring a two hour feast of classic Gershwin.
