DEEP IN MY HEART by Elliott Arnold


Email this review


Show business- with Sigmund Romberg at centre stage- this is fictionized biography of a full life. The story goes back to the boy of ten in Austria, who know music must be his life, and struggled against his father's desire to make him an engineer. Vivid picture of Austrian school days -- of a year of military service -- of departure for America, and a new life, the upward climb to success that ultimately embraced almost every phase of musical life in popular music. From restaurant band to orchestra leader, song writer on beltline production, his first hit, The Student Prince, starting him out on his own, movies, radio, concert tour- and a theatrical come-back with the recent success, Up In Central Park. There is a panorama of show business and its people over a span of fifty years.
