Well this was perfect. I think Love Me Tonight is my favorite musical from the 30s. Really funny, creative sound and cinematography and filled with charm and happiness. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very creative, most definitely ahead of its time. If you enjoy musicals then this is one to watch! Myrna Loy as Countess Valentine steals the show for me.

From the very first sequence of Love Me Tonight, you know you're in for something special with this delightfully clever musical comedy. Maurice Chevalier is the Frenchiest tailor in all of Paris, who gets mistaken for a blue blood when he goes up to the Chateau to see his bills paid, and of course, falls in love with the princess, Jeanette MacDonald, his usual movie match (though Myrna Loy also has a small role as a possible rival). If nothing else, this has to be seen for the highly entertaining "Isn't It Romantic?" number, but stick around, because director Rouben Mamoulian stuffs the movie to the gills with fun, quirky ideas, resulting in a very modern-seeming musical compared to, oh, the next couple decades. And I laughed a lot. Big belly laughs. Often thanks to the deadpan Charles Butterworth, but there's the introduction of a certain horse too... And though it doesn't take itself seriously, it's still pretty cutting about classist society. Shame all we have is a post-Code edit, I wonder what the missing minutes were like.

Actually it's quite ahead of its time.

Maurice Chevalier is difficult to understand at times, but this is a film full of stars. Not just famous people, but actual movie stars in their prime.

I can't figure out why Myrna Loy's character needed to be in this film.

Love Me Tonight is lovely, but I prefer The Love Parade.

This had other redeeming qualities to keep me interested (especially a great bit part by Myrna Loy), but man, Maurice Chevalier is unwatchably awful.
