This week in Mal’s World, Mal Vincent previews the latest film in his summer movie festival, 1952’s With a Song in My Heart, starring Susan Hayward with songs performed by Jane Froman. Mal reveals the story behind Hayward’s desire to be a “southern belle,” even though she was from New York City, plus how she was part of one of the most controversial and “deadly” film productions in movie history.
