July 27 – Perfect Code Film Feature #27
Today’s highlighted film is Intermezzo from 1939. This is the story of a brilliant violinist who is captivated by the sweet, young, and talented woman who teaches his daughter piano lessons. Although the pianist, who has long admired him from afar, tries to resist temptation for both of them, the violinist is irresistibly drawn to her. This film stars Leslie Howard, Ingrid Bergman, and Edna Best. It was directed by Gregory Ratoff, produced by David O. Selznick, and released by United Artists. This is a perfect Code film because it shows the unhappiness which comes with infidelity, the misery which it causes to broken families, and the importance of protecting your marriage. I like this movie because of its magnificent acting, its heart-rending theme song, and its great cast, especially the sweet Ingrid Bergman in her American debut . My favorite thing about it is the sweet and realistic relationship between Leslie Howard’s violinist character and his beloved young daughter played by Ann E. Todd.
