Words and Music
A musical biography of song and show composers Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Rodgers, who penned the music, managed to live a reasonably happy and normal life, with a stable marriage and comfortable home. Lyricist Hart, by contrast, gradually grew more and more depressed, and never succeeded in finding the relationship he longed for; he died when only 47 years of age. The film features numerous musical and choreographic interludes, performed by some of MGM's best-known stars.
