There is a very simple reason why they don't make movies like this now. As a matter of fact, there are at least two, equally valid, reasons. There are no heroes like Jane Froman and there are no actresses like Susan Hayward.

In 1952, 20th Century-Fox produced a Technicolor extravaganza devoted to the singing career of the legendary Jane Froman.Today, most folks don’t know who she was, but this film — strangely missing from the Fox classics series — not only shows us the kind of woman she was but treats us to one of the most amazing catalogs of music ever put on screen.Music director Alfred Newman, with associate Ken Darby, worked with Jane Froman and Susan Hayward, who portrayed/lip synced to Froman’s voice.

I wonder when this wonderful movie "With a song in my heart" will be available in DVD format with subtitle in Spanish. I love this movie and it is impossible to see it in Mexico. Please help me!!!! I saw this movie almost 25 years ago and since then I became a Jane Froman's fan, I have all their CD's. I enjoy Jane Froman's songs and my little daughter 4 years old is listening at their songs, but I would love that she can see this movie one day, that's why I would like to know if there is a possibility to have this movie in DVD format. I hope one day it will include Spanish subtitle too. Susan Hayward has an excellent performance in this movie. I highly recommend this movie. Help me! help me please!!!!
