The Screen Guide

A vaudeville biography of Nellie Melba, from her childhood in Richmond to her death, at 70, in Sydney. Her unsuccessful marriage, her notorious affair with the Duke of Orleans, her triumphs across the world in opera and her final decline are depicted against a checkerboard of the eccentrics who surround her. A 'repertory' cast of eight plays 20 characters, to Robyn Nevin's Melba.
