Humoresque

Published

on


In Humoresque, with the encouragment of his mother, a poor but talented violinist (John Garfield) rises in the music world. But he also receives a more physical form of assistance from a wealthy, married patron of the arts with amorous intentions (Joan Crawford). Their involvement has tragic repercussions for both of them. High-class melodrama co-scripted by Clifford Odets.

Whilst the movie was being filmed, Joan Crawford won an Academy Award for her performance in Mildred Pierce (1945). In reaction, Warner Bros. altered the script for Humoresque to give Crawford a much more substantial role.

Academy Award Nominations: Best Score.
