This biographical movie about the life and music of Jerome Kern has a number of good sequences that make it worth watching. A great deal of the movie consists simply of recreations of stage numbers from Kern's many musicals, and indeed these account for many of the best parts of the movie. It also adds a light and highly stylized account of his career, which is often bland, but occasionally has some nice moments.
