Before there was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt...before there was Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall...before there was Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton...There was Efrem Zimbalist and Alma Gluck.

A little over 100 years ago, a nice Jewish boy who happened to be a violin genius  met a lovely Jewish young woman who was making a name for herself as a singer. I guess you could say that when these two Jewish superstars of classical music fell in love they were destined to make beautiful music together.

The Zimbalist-Gluck romance provided lots of material for the gossips of their day. While the idea of such a wonderful pairing of talents was thrilling, there were those who pointed out that Gluck was six years older, as well as a divorcee with a daughter. Scandalous!
