This is an example of the musicals of the 60s where pop stars or musicians were featured who weren't really actors so the story has to be fitted around their talents.In this instance the main aspect of Ray Charles featured,apart from his music,is his blindness.A desire to help a blind boy have an operation which might restore his sight.Unfortunately the boy is played by Piers Bishop,in a flat monotone voice.Rather like a speak your weight machine.This becomes extremely grating on the ear.A good part of the film is occupied by Ray Charles in concert.So if you are a fan of his you can ignore the tripe that passes for a story.If you don't it's probably better to fast forward the whole film.
