Elizabeth Taylor strives for sweet harmony as a privileged young woman who must choose between the two musicians she loves. She first falls for a devoted violinist (Vittorio Gassman) and follows him when he goes off to musical studies abroad. There, she also meets a talented pianist (John Ericson) who tries to play the initially uninterested lady into his heart.

As events and emotions unfold, the inevitable conflict arises: which man does she truly love, which one is better for her – and could both be the same person? Smoothly directed by musical movie maestro Charles Vidor, filmed in such romantic locales as Paris, Zurich, St. Moritz and Rome and showcasing vibrant renditions of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Beethoven concertos, Rhapsody is a moving and melodic treat.
