The Melody Lingers On is a 1935 film.[1]


A piano virtuoso has a child out of wedlock to her finance, who is killed trying to save her life. Their son is brought up by foster parents and becomes a musician.


Edward Small bought the rights to the novel in November 1934.[2] Lillian Hellman wrote an early draft of the script.[3] Philip Dunne was then hired to work on it with Ralph Block.


According to Dunne "The Melody Lingers On lingered not at all in theaters but died a swift and merciful death".[4]
