MY WILD IRISH ROSE (1947)
Starring Dennis Morgan, Arlene Dahl, and Andrea King
A fictionalized biography of Chauncey Olcott, My Wild Irish Rose traces the rise of an Irish-American tenor to stardom at the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th.
Dennis Morgan is great as Olcutt. The supporting cast is excellent, especially Andrea King as the glamorous Lillian Russell. The turn of the century atmosphere is a perfect setting, especially as filmed in beautiful Technicolor. Definitely a feel good movie that is highly underrated and rarely shown.
Olcott's original composition of the same name was included in the film's music, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
