Competition Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Rochelle O'Gorman

When you are in the mood for a pleasant little romance, this should fit the bill. Amy Irving and Richard Dreyfuss are young pianists vying for the same prize. Surprise, surprise, they fall in love. We then must wait, with (nearly) breathless anticipation, to see if she will throw the contest to ensure his love. It is all a bit starry-eyed, but not overly gooey. The concert footage is handled with class, and there are some fine supporting performances from Sam Wanamaker and Lee Remick. It is also a lot of fun to see Dreyfuss and Irving as such fresh-faced innocents.

Academy Awards

The Competition received Academy Awards nominations for Film Editing (David Blewitt) and Music Best Song (Lalo Schifrin - Music, Wilbur Jennings - Lyrics).
