Song Of Scheherazade (DVD)
1947 Hollywood classic musical telling the story of an imaginary episode in the life of Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.
Directed by Walter Reisch and starring Yvonne De Carlo, Brian Donlevy and Jean-Pierre Aumont
In 1865, the cadets of a Russian Naval Academy ship have shore leave in Morocco. Among them is (fictionalised) young future composer Nicky Rimsky-Korsakov. He is a midshipman in the Imperial Russian Navy, but secretly desires to become a composer.
In search of a piano, Nicky and singing ship's doctor Klin (played by Metropolitan Opera tenor Charles Kullman) meet a family of once-wealthy Spanish colonists and their daughter Cara who secretly dances in a Spanish cabaret. Romantic complications ensue, but Nicky seems less interested in Caras favors than in inspirations for his future masterpieces.
