Where the Heart Roams

Where the Heart Roams was produced, directed and edited by George Csicsery, who began to research the subject for two magazine articles he published in 1982. The film was shot by noted San Francisco Bay Area filmmaker and cinematographer John Knoop. Original music for Where the Heart Roams was composed by Mark Adler, one of the most talented young score composers (then) in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a film director in his own right. Mark Adler also conducted the Love Train Symphonette in his own arrangement of music to accompany Barbara Cartland's performance of the songs "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and "Love is My Reason."
