I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls - Jacqueline Wells - Bohemian Girl, 1936

Jacqueline Wells is so endearing here, but her lovely voice is dubbed by Rosina Lawrence. Michael William Balfe, composer, would probably not have enjoyed what happened to his opera, but one never knows! Either way, it's one of the more entertaining scenes; Ms. Wells is trilling about her exotic dream, "father" Oliver is blubbering, and "Uncle" Stan is just stuffing his face with all the breakfast on the table!

This song, I feel, requires a .natural, unpretentious singer to convey the
right characterization and Rosina Lawrence gets it right. I confess my
disappointment with Dame Joan Sutherland who, to my ear, sounds too studied
& heavy to impart the right personality.. I also disagree with the
excessive decoration used on the reprise, once again quite out of

For those who have a low opinion of humanity, watch this scene, in addition
to the rest of Laurel and Hardy (their dance in "Way Out West" for
example). Your opinion will be raised, fractionally, to be sure, but,
nevertheless, raised.

This to my way of thinking is the best version of the song. Such a pleasure

Such a lovely scene. The wonderful voice of Rosina Lawrence and the lovely
innocent endearing acting of Jacqueline Wells. It's a shame Ms. Wells
could not have given Joan Sutherland some lessons in acting and stage
deportment. Might have really helped.

I was haunted by this song for many years Count John McCormack did a
version all old, crackley & squeaky, but he brought it from Ireland to
America in the 20s. A very famous song here in Dublin in my grandmothers
But Ms Lawrence sung it perfectly (not forced), has to be sad and wistful.
Nice one.

I'm so glad you enjoyed this! Aside from the brief moments of comedy
provided by L and H, this piece, as performed here, is unforgettable! I
first heard it "sung/spoken" by Gene Tierney in a very atmospheric, and
memorable mystery film. Loved the melody then played on the piano, and
later found it here! I'm happy that I did, and even happier that you wrote
about it! Best regards!

Author varadero1839 (1 year)
Thanks so much for your comment! Just viewed the Sutherland rendition and,
though lovely, found it a little too rehearsed. Know I'll get my head
handed to me, but have to say the same for lovely Jesse Norman. Rosina
Lawrence seemed to keep this in the realm of reality; her voice flowed so
naturally! Just getting ready for the brickbats to come! Best to you

soulful and genuinely touching. This scene sums up why classic cinema is

I never forget this always reminds me of my youth with Laurel and Hardy

And I loved this recording from the film, completely new to me. This song
always makes me weep, but especially after the death of my brother who
loved it so much.

worth reading about!

I'd attempted to reply in a friendly/nasty/clever way to this observation.
I thought I'd give the piece in question a chance! I visited, heard it, and
I'm dumbfounded! It's a lovely rendition of this song, but you're comparing
apples and oranges! Your having mentioned the "wonderful version," of the
song denigrates the one that's already posted! Please reconsider your
comments! They're really inappropriate and offensive!

Author varadero1839 (1 year)
I think there exists a kind of Heaven for this type of song. In their
heyday, these songs were considered as future classics! Time had other
plans for them, and they sort of melted away. Whoever produced this L and H
movie recognized a beauty when he heard it! He did everything right; great
cast, beautiful orchestration, fine actress and dubbing singer. What's not
to like? Thanks a lot for your comment!

Author colinsmyth99 (4 years)
Fantastic scene from a brilliant film. I think there would have been
something wrong with Balfe if he didn't enjoy this. There's nothing wrong
with this tune he wrote. Gorgeous.

@roadsweeper69 What a tribute! I'm really glad to hear from you! Some folks
couch their comments in "double-speak." Sometimes, I'm guilty of the same

I will say that one can understand all the words, which is not necessarily
the case with Sutherland's performances of the aria, or even Norman's.
Roberta Peters also made a wonderful recording of this. However, I do
admire the other three ladies' singing as well.

Nate, you are so right! Sutherland sings it with a resounding "OOOOOO"
