Love Me Tonight

Monday, June 4

Film History Suburbs & Beyond

Musical fans, see where it all began! Rodgers and Hart score this tale of a poor Parisian tailor (Maurice Chevalier) who poses as a count to ingratiate himself with a family of eccentric aristocrats (including a young Myrna Loy) in order to win the heart of a beautiful princess (Jeanette MacDonald). With its innovative editing and ingenious set pieces (including the legendary “symphony of sound,” in which the urban cacophony coalesces into a musical arrangement), Love Me Tonight landed like a meteor in the sound era, blowing open the potential of the musical genre and the film medium.
