Broken Strings

Broken Strings is a 1940 American film directed by Bernard B. Ray and produced by L.C. Borden.


Concert violinist Arthur Williams (Clarence Muse) and his manager Earl Wells (Earle Morris) are involved in a car accident in which Arthur's fingers are paralyzed. Instead of playing at concerts he becomes a music teacher. He favors his student Dickie Morley's (Matthew "Stymie" Beard) classical musical preferences over his own son John's (William Washington), which tends towards modern swing.
