Its title and 1929 vintage notwithstanding, Dream Melody was a silent picture. John Roche plays Richard Gordon, an aspiring composer who can't get arrested in his field of endeavor. Upon meeting nightclub singer Mary Talbot (Mary Julienne Scott), Gordon is inspired to write his greatest melody. The song catches the ear of impresario George Monroe (Robert Walker), and before long Gordon has scaled the heights of fame and fortune. Mary despairs that she's been forgotten, but Gordon proves otherwise in the film's emotion-charged climax.
