Constant Nymph, The (Warner 1943, Charles Boyer, Joan Fontaine)

Published

on


The Constant Nymph is a romantic melodrama of a young composer living in Switzerland with his mentor and the man’s four young daughters, one of whom is secretly in love with the dashing composer. When the mentor dies, a wealthy uncle comes to take the girls to England. With him is his daughter, whom the composer marries after a whirlwind courtship.

Back in England, however, he’s suffocated by his new life of money and prestige, and his music suffers. When his mentor’s daughter comes to him after fleeing her repressive boarding school, he realizes, a bit too late, that she is his true love, and the real inspiration for his art. Under her influence, he composes again, but tragedy strikes during the triumphant performance of his new work.

For The Constant Nymph, composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold composed an original symphonic tone poem, Tomorrow, which was so popular that Eileen Farrell sang it on a Bell Telephone Hour broadcast shortly after the film opened.
