Picture of the day: the spaghetti-addicted composer

Nils Asther in Mary Names The Day, 1941, MGM (also known as Dr Kildare's Wedding Day).

In this movie, Asther plays an Italian orchestral conductor, Labardi, who presents the medical staff with an unusual complaint - he is losing his hearing due to eating too much spaghetti. I really have no words on the surreality of this storyline.
