LUCY'S MOVIE GUIDE
I Dream Too Much (1935)
(featuring Lucille Ball as Gwendolyn Dilley)
Lily Pons plays Annette, a rural French musical student who marries struggling American composer Jonathan (Henry Fonda).
Possessed of a splendid singing voice, our heroine rises to fame on the opera stage, while poor Jonathan continues struggling, supporting himself as a tour guide.
Annette eventually saves her marriage by transforming her husband's "masterpiece," a rather turgid modernistic opera, into a light-hearted musical comedy.
Special Notes: Lucille Ball has a funny minor role as a gum-snapping tourist. Besides several movie-shorts, this was one of the first movies where Lucille Ball was given a credited role.
