After a successful premiere of the film Lina’s is ousted as not portraying her real voice and Kathy is then celebrated. This is reflexive because a as joke the it’s the actress that plays Lina’s own voice that’s used to dub herself. Whereas when Kathy sings she is dubbed by another actress who went uncredited which mirrors the film exactly.

His fascination with this genre was mostly impart of its ability to make music sound uniquely American. When asked to comment on jazz as a generating force for his compositions, Copland remarked: “You see, I was very aware of how French the French music seemed in those days.
