This sweet, infectious 1932 classic featuring music by Rodgers & Hart stars Maurice Chevalier as Maurice Courtelin, a tailor who moves in with the family of a French royal, Vicomte Gilbert de Vareze (Charles Ruggles), to whom he owes money but can't pay. The Vicomte introduces Courtelin as a baron, and soon everyone's enchanted by him, including Princess Jeanette (Jeanette MacDonald). But when they discover the truth, what will he do?

Love Me Tonight is a 1932 musical comedy film which tells the story of a penniless nobleman who moves a tailor to whom he owes money into his chateau and passes him off as nobility. It stars Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette MacDonald, Charles Ruggles, Charles Butterworth and Myrna Loy.

The movie was adapted by Samuel Hoffenstein, George Marion Jr. and Waldemar Young from the play by Paul Armont and LĂ©opold Marchand. It was directed by Rouben Mamoulian. The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. It features the classic Rodgers and Hart songs "Isn't it Romantic?", "Mimi", and "Lover" (the last of these is not sung romantically as it often is in nightclubs, but comically, as Jeanette MacDonald tries to control an unruly horse that she is riding). The staging of "Isn't It Romantic?" was revolutionary for its time, combining both singing and film editing, as the song is passed from one singer (or group of singers) to another, all of whom are at different locales.

Movie Review:
Love Me Tonight

The score is so good that songs that would normally be the finest in a
musical, like "Mimi" and "Love Me Tonight" are completely overshadowed
by two of the greatest songs that the legendary team wrong: the waltz-like
"Lover" (sung by Jeanette MacDonald in a carriage) and the epic "Isn't
It Romantic?" Rogers was one of the greatest composers the American
stage or cinema has seen, but as fine as his music is in these two songs,
Hart just might be a tad better. The lyrics are simply astonishing.

Take these from "Lover," which are closer to poetry than to mere song lyrics:
Lover, when I'm near you/ And I hear you speak my name/ Softly, in my ear
you/ Breathe a flame. The lyrics, on the other hand, of "Isn't It Romantic?"
are cleverly nonchalant, many of the lines mere vowels as the singers hum
rather than sing.

Later versions "cleaned up" the lyrics, but in the movie the rough, almost
unfinished quality of the lyrics enhances their appeal. It begins in Paris with
Maurice Chevalier singing in his shop (with marvelous use of mirrors), and
the tune leaving the shop on the lips of a customer, only to be passed onto
a cab driver, from him to a fare who is a composer, on from him to a troop
of soldiers marching in the countryside, and from them to a gypsy violinist
who is overheard by Jeanette MacDonald in her chateau, where the song
concludes. It is a breathtaking performance.

There is so much nonchalant fun in this film! For instance, a marvelous
conversation between C. Aubrey Smith and Charles Butterworth in a stable,
with a horse's head firmly wedged between them. Or the remarkably humorous
fox hunt.

This is a must-see film for anyone who loves classic cinema or pre-code
musical comedies. It is almost impossible to surpass in terms of cast,
music, camera work, or humor. Love it tonight.

Verse of the Day

Thought &


* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
