#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Paul Boray comes from a working class background. He has been interested in the violin since he was a child, which his father disliked since he felt it a waste of money, but which his mother supported. Into his adult life, Paul wants to become a concert violinist, and although he shows talent, he does not have the right connections to make it into the concert performance world, much like his longtime friend, virtuoso pianist Sid Jeffers, and cellist Gina, both who, like Paul, train with the National Institute Orchestra. Gina and Paul have a connection with each other, Gina who confesses her love for him. While performing at a party with Sid, Paul meets Helen and Victor Wright, their hosts. Victor is a perceptive but self-admittedly weak man, while his wife Helen is strong minded but insecure which manifests itself as neurosis. She constantly tries to forget about her unhappy life by excessive alcohol consumption. Helen becomes Paul’s benefactress, which ultimately results in a successful concert career for Paul. But the two also fall in love, a destructive love against the wishes of Paul’s mother and Gina. That love may not only destroy Paul’s concert career, but their lives as well.
Plot: A classical musician from a working class background is sidetracked by his love for a wealthy, neurotic socialite.

Absorbing story with flawless acting by Garfield
I was astounded by the virtuoso performance on the violin by John Garfield. I truly believed he was a multi talented man. I looked up IMDb and found out that they were using two doubles to actually play the violin. I am even more amazed that the two actual violinists by his side each played the bow and the strings separately. The effect was perfect to the viewers. The pieces selected were also of the type that could easily appeal to those whose knowledge and experience with western classical music is limited. Bravo Isaac Stern for this music. I am reminded of Fiddler on the Roof which also had this great violinist give us the pleasure of his performance. Oscar Levant is of course a pianist also and it is he who turned out to be multi talented.
Great Classic Film
Joan Crawford, (Helen Wright) plays the role of a very rich woman who is married and loves to entertain all kinds of actors, and musicians and she happens to meet a violin player named Paul Boray,(John Garfield). Paul came from a medium income family and his father, Rudy Boray, (J.Carrol Naish) is a Deli owner in New York City and finds that his son wants to play the violin. Helen Wright decides to introduce Paul into a world of famous musicians and agents who are very impressed by Paul’s outstanding talent and he begins to climb up the ladder of success in the world of concert music. Helen is a rather wild woman who loves to drink and is involved with quite a few men, however, she falls madly in love with Paul and finally gets a divorce in order to marry Paul. This story has a very strange ending and you will never guess just how it really ends.
