must see for classical music lovers
- Connie Neilson
My husband and I viewed this movie on TCM while visiting friends in Tucson Thanksgiving 2007. Since we watch TCM religiously, we were amazed that we had never heard of it. We both loved the story, production, acting, music and informative introduction by your wonderful guest hostess who viewed this movie while in Japan. I think it has been played again on TCM a few times, but should be repeated at least once per year, maybe on Clara Wieck Schumann's birthday. This is is one of Katherine Hepburns best movies. Glad to see it is finally available for purchase from TCM!
I am so glad this movie was made!

I recorded this onto my DVR when TCM ran it a few months ago. I didn't watch it till last night (why I waited so long I don't know---maybe I was afraid it would not be as wonderful as it truly is). Now I am watching it for the second time and the tears are constantly present from the very opening scene. I love Schumann and Brahms, being particularly drawn to the beauty and "love element" present in Schumann's music. This movie really brings that out as it tells the story of Robert and Clara's great love for one another. It's amazing how I forget that it's Katherine Hepburn playing Clara. She *is* Clara in this film, and the love and dedication for Robert that is portrayed by her in this exquisite film is astounding. That's what I have been hearing in Schumann's music ever since I first fell in love with it 20 or so years ago---the Song of Love---his great love for Clara. If you are not moved to tears at the end of this movie then you're probably really dead and just don't know it. ;0)
A Love Song
A wonderful movie! I would love to give this movie to a friend of mine who loves Schumann. She's a classical pianist and would love the story and the music. I hope you make it available soon on DVD.
Romantic era composers
I enjoyed this film and was surprised to find a film depicting three of the Romantic era's composers: Clara Wieck, her husband Robert Schumann, and his student, and subsequent national treasure in his own right, Johannes Brahms. It is a lovely film and one I would love to see transferred to DVD for college music majors to appreciate. Theirs is a lovely story and Clara's is a rarely showcased "female" talent in a male-dominated era coupled with an intensely feminine dedication to her husband's music. It is such an auditory and visual treat (lovely actors).
We need this on DVD!
Saw this marvelous film when I was a teenager, and I remember it still. It's a classic,and as a classical music nut it's remarkable that Hollywood did it.
We Need this in DVD. Outstanding
This movie shows great acting with a wonderful life story. Something about watching someone's life story -- and the life of Robert Schumann to boot. Katherine Hepburn -- superb. Please -- why not available in DVD? This is a classic to watch over and over again.
What a wonderful movie full of grace and character. Two of my grandchildren also saw this movie and were mesmorized by the beautiful music.
Good Robert Walker performance
- Wendy Winkler
This movie provides one of the rare times in Mr. Walker's short career what a fine actor he was.
