This is the true story about the life of torch singer Ruth Etting and her evil-tempered husband Martin Snyder [the man who orchestrated Etting’s climb to stardom]. This dramatic film focuses on her troubled relationship with the feared gangster Snyder. A relationship that turned her offstage life into a nightmare of violence and terror. To say this was a gritty departure from previous “Doris Day” movie roles would be an understatement. Day’s role was praised by the critics and this dramatically charged picture received an impressive six Oscar nominations that included Best Actor (James Cagney), Best Song (I’ll Never Stop Loving You), Best Motion Picture Story and Best Screenplay. Day’s movie soundtrack album also became her most successful LP staying on the American Billboard chart for a staggering 28 weeks!
