One Night of Love is basically an operatic film. It’s the fact that the film is human, down to earth, that helps most. Even the operatic excerpts have all been carefully picked for popular appeal.

Story [by Dorothy Speare and Charles Beahan] is one of those convenient little yarns spun around the career of a singer (Grace Moore). She fails to win a radio contest so goes to Europe on her own, has usual student struggles, sings in a cafe, is discovered by Tullio Carminati, a great singing teacher. He drives her, mesmerises her, makes her into a star. She falls in love with him, is jealous of another girl singer, and almost upsets the applecart at the last minute of success at the Metropolitan debut in New York.

It’s all handled carefully. Carminati, as the teacher-lover, is a perfect choice and manages to ease himself into a lot more attention than might be expected. Lyle Talbot is the other man for Moore and Mona Barrie is the other girl. Both do well enough. Jessie Ralph is excellent as the housekeeper.
