The film was the last to be directed by Paul Henreid. Ray Charles helps blind boy David in his struggle to regain his sight. However, David’s overprotective mother Peggy is afraid of the risks connected with restoring David’s sight. Ray tries to help the family, offering Peggy’s heavy-drinking partner Steve an opportunity to work with Ray’s band. Fashion designer Gina tries to lure Steve and Margaret encourages David to sneak out and wander around London late at night on a mischievous adventure. The Cast is amazing and the film is not widely known as it was a 1965 British drama music film. However, it’s quite worth your musical education and entertainment. Check out the cast:
