The Melody Lingers On is a 1935 American film.


A piano virtuoso has a child out of wedlock to her fiance, who is killed trying to save her life. Their son is brought up by foster parents and becomes a musician. The cast was headed by Josephine Hutchinson, George Houston and John Halliday.


Edward Small bought the rights to the novel in November 1934.[1] Lillian Hellman wrote an early draft of the script.[2] Philip Dunne was then hired to work on it with Ralph Block.


According to Dunne "The Melody Lingers On lingered not at all in theaters but died a swift and merciful death".[3]
