Description by OLDIES.com:
Fresh from Gone with the Wind, Olivia de Havilland was eager to continue in demanding roles. Those roles (and Academy Awards) would come. But after GWTW's Melanie came a spun-sugar romp starring de Havilland as talented violin-student Amelia. The doting CEO of Monarch Music Co. secretly gives Amelia the funds to stay in school, a Monarch exec smitten by Amelia feels he must cover up the boss's "affair," the CEO's ambitious son thinks funds missing from Monarch's books are embezzled by the exec... and Cupid's arrows fly. With the misunderstandings and missteps comes music fit for lively stepping as fellow students Eddie Albert and Jane Wyatt join Olivia in turning classical pieces into the swingin' sounds of the era.
Olivia DeHavilland stars as a music student whose education is secretly subsidized by the aging owner of a phonograph factory (Charles Winninger). The old man hopes to vicariously live his own musical aspirations through the young woman's success. DeHavilland, however, is just as interested in romance as in music, and with the help of her best friend (Jane Wyman) she sets about to win a handsome husband (Jeffrey Lynn). Featured in the supporting cast are William Orr, the son-in-law of studio head Jack Warner (and later a TV producer) and former silent screen ingenue Mabel Taliaferro. MY LOVE CAME BACK, a remake of a mid-1930s Austrian film musical, was the first Hollywood assignment for director Curtis Bernhardt.
