(OK) Well directed, toned, musicalized, wrtitten, acted, equilibrated. Only lacks dance, but there's a sort of choreography all over, including the 3 old laidies. Applause for Mamoulian.

A classic

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it seemed to have a decent reputation (it is included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list among other things), I thought I might as well check it out. To be honest, even though Maurice Chevalier was quite famous in the 30’s, it was actually the first time I saw a movie starring this guy. However, from the momen... read more

Description: One Of The Best Musicals Ever Made!" - Leonard Maltin Love Me Tonight is a madcap musical tour de force of infectious melody, effortless vivacity and ceaseless invention from first frame to last. Building on a foundations of songs by Rodgers and Hard ("Babes In Arms", "Pal Joey"), director Rouben Mamoulian (Applause) shepherds Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette Macdonald through an exuberant romp that film maven Leslie Haliwell declared, "the most fluently cinematic comedy musical ever made." Carefree tailor Maurice Chevalier leaves a backlot Paris where music literally radiates from every sh ... (more)

Taste of Cinema's Essential Pre-Code Hollywood (30 movies items)

"The renowned Pre-Code musical finds Maurice Chevalier as a humble tailor, who masquerade as a Baron, charms a beautiful but reclusive princess played by Jeanette MacDonald. From its famous opening sequence of the city of Paris, as it awakens, with its diverse sounds and faces, to its rendition of standards such as the unforgettable “Isn’t it Romantic?”, Love Me Tonight delivers a romantic, escapist and fun experience. The supporting cast is also note-worthy, with Myrna Loy as naughty coun"

" Notes: To be honest, even though Maurice Chevalier was quite famous in the 30’s, it was actually the first time I saw a movie starring this guy. However, from the moment he started to speak, I remembered right away that he was the guy who actually sang the title song for ‘The AristoCats’. The funny thing is that I would usually never care for a character speaking English with such a heavy French accent, it is such a tiresome and annoying gimmick, the fact that I barely can stand it proba"

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"LOVE ME TONIGHT - PASSING ON A TUNE Rouben Mamoulian's beautiful, unconventional Musical 'Love Me Tonight' is a little-known gem in the underappreciated director's catalogue. Its simple tale of a Parisian tailor (a young Maurice Chevalier) who falls in love with a princess while posing as a Baron in an attempt to obtain unpaid tailor's bills from a family of aristocrats (OK, maybe it's not that simple!) is merely a hook on which to hang its gorgeous set-pieces and surprisingly pointed satire.
