The film goes beyond the themes of war and anti-Nazism and concerns itself with man’s struggle to preserve human dignity.

“Biography of song writer Jerome Kern played by Robert Walker. Iu0026#39;m not sure how factual this is but my guess is not very. It just seems an excuse for MGM to trot out all their musical and dancing stars out in bright, billiant Technicolor to belt out Kernu0026#39;s tunes. As for the non-musical numbers the u0026quot;dramau0026quot; is trite and everybody is so nice and squeaky clean you want to scream–and Walker seems VERY uncomfortable in the title role.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStill it looks just great and there are many musical highlights: the mini-production of u0026quot;Showboatu0026quot;; Lena Horne singing u0026quot;Canu0026#39;t Help Loving Dat Manu0026quot;; young, beautiful and bosomy Angela Landsbury belting out a dance hall song; the title tune; Judy Garland sings two numbers and Van Johnson singing and dancing (!!!). The other numbers are good but just lack that spark to make them memorable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo…see it for the music.”
