Tony Warrin has it all: a popular pianist who plays any style, he has money, great clothes, a penthouse overlooking Central Park, a rich blond fiancée, a loyal brunette secretary secretly in love with him, and a date at Carnegie Hall. On concert night, disease deafens him. While medical science works on a cure, he must find other ventures. He learns lip reading and, using high-powered binoculars, eavesdrops on conversations in the park. When he finds people in need, he plays God, interceding with help. Meanwhile, his fiancée is falling in love with another man, his secretary quits, and his doctors give him new hope. Carnegie Hall and true love may be within reach.

Tony, what are you doing?
Maybe I am a coward! Maybe I don't have the heroics you admire in people, but I know how I feel inside! And it makes me wonder... about God. A God who has no time to help those who need him!
Liberace is listed in the opening credits with the familiar ornate script of his official concert logo. See more
