Song Scheherazade DVD 1947 Yvonne De Carlo Musical Adventure Color NR
Stars of Song Scheherazade: Yvonne De Carlo, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Brian Donlevy, Eve Arden
In 1865, the cadets of a Russian Naval Academy ship have shore leave in Morocco; among them is (fictionalized) future composer ‘Nicky’ Rimsky-Korsakov. In search of a piano, Nicky and singing ship’s doctor Klin meet a family of once-wealthy Spanish colonists…and their daughter Cara who secretly dances in a cabaret. Romantic complications ensue, but Nicky seems less interested in Cara’s favors than in inspirations for his future masterpieces.
Rimsky-Korsakov secretly yearns to be a composer, but naval regulations prevent him from doing so. He uses a stopover in Tangiers to work on his next composition, Scheherazade (which is actually a symphonic suite but in the film is a ballet), with the tacit support of his captain. There he meets Cara de Talavera and her mother, and romantic events and complications ensue. He has to leave to return home to Russia, where his ballet is staged, but Cara unexpectedly turns up as one of the dancers, and they are reunited…
