Solo per Te (Only For You) is an adequate showcase for the rich tenor voice of Beniamino Gigli. The star plays an opera singer who is married to what used to be known as "a woman with a history" (Maria Cebotari). When that history catches up with her in the form of her villainous ex-lover (Michael Bohnen), the result is murder. Accused of the crime, the heroine is cleared by one of those deathbed confessions so common to backstage melodramas of this nature. Seemingly oblivious to all these intrigues, Beniamino Gigli sings magnificently throughout the film.
