Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Where Words Fail was originally released in Argentina in 1946 as Donde Mueren las Palabras. The film recounts the life and work of famed concert pianist Dario Garzay, here playing himself. Garzay's rise to fame is counterpointed with the story of Victorio (Enrique Muino), a prominent symphony conductor who goes into decline after the death of his ballerina daughter Fedora (Linda Lorena). While working as a night watchman, Victorio serves as Garzay's spiritual mentor, and the rest is musical history. Director Hugo Fregonese would relocate to Hollywood in 1950, there to helm such interesting "little" films as My Six Convicts and The Raid.
