Based on Walter Reisch's play The Song is Ended, The Song You Gave Me is a British attempt to emulate the glossy "continental" style. Hollywood's Bebe Daniels (who later took up permanent residence in London) stars as Mitzi Hansen, the personal secretary to world-renowned singer Karl Linden (Victor Varconi). He falls in love with her, but she keeps him at arm's length. As time goes by, of course, Mitzi wins Karl on her own terms. Bebe Daniels handles her musical numbers with her usual charm and grace, while Frederick Lloyd offers silly-ass comedy relief as "Baron Bobo." Eva Moore, cast as Daniels' grandmother, was at the time of The Song You Gave Me the mother-in-law of Laurence Olivier.
