Going "all out" for authenticity, the producers engaged a noted eye speclalfst to design special contact lenses for Andrews opaque, ol all things! As a result of this ahenanigan.

the hapless Mr. Andrews, once the lenses are fitted to his orbs, can distinguish only ligbt and shadow as he goes about his daily "Night Song" duties. Merle Oberon, who, plays Andrews' ever-loving lass in the picture, has to be his "Seeing Eye" dog andj leads him hither and yon through all his trying scenes. Furthermore, the poor fellow has to play the piano and he can't read a Bute of music. Max Rablnowitch, noted concert pianist, took Andrews hand in hand and taught the "blind" man some nifty fingering that will-probably bamboozle every film fan who sees the tricky exhibition on the screen.
