Moonlight Sonata (1937)

Saw this thirties movie tonight, it's a bit of a musical oddity really - Ignacy Jan Paderewski stars as himself, a great piano player and composer. It starts off with a lengthy piano recital and eventually has the Polish piano player looking back at an event in his past, with a slightly unnecessary love story revolving around the eponymous Beethoven piece. Unfortunately the print I saw (the 1995 VHS version) wasn't very good and crucially the sound quality suffered, but it was still a rather enjoyable film.
