Hollywood Stars At Home

Review Jeanette MacDonald is Sonia, a bubbly widow who owns 52% of every cow and cowtown in the tiny European country of Marshovia. When she relocates to glittery Paris, suave ladies’ man Captain Danilo (Maurice Chevalier) sets out in hot pursuit. His mission: avert his homeland’s financial ruin by bringing Sonia back on the wings of love. But hang on tight, Danilo. Love always flies a delirious course when legendary director Ernst Lubitsch, known for sophisticated wit and a style affectionately dubbed as “the Lubitsch touch” is at the helm. A frothy, high-spirited gem based on Franz Lehar’s operetta, The Merry Widow set the standard for musicals to come. And it confirmed what MGM’s top brass already knew: Jeanette MacDoanld was a major star.

So enjoy the rapturous music, the sparkling dialogue and the swirling “Merry Widow Waltz.” You’ll have to look far and wide for a better comic operetta than this.

The Merry Widow

Review Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald sing and fall in love to the songs of Rodgers and Hart in director Rouben Mamoulian's Love Me Tonight, one of the greatest screen musicals in history. Cheated out of 15 suits by the deadbeat Viscount de Varze (Charlie Ruggles), poor Parisian couturier Maurice Courtelin (Chevalier) heads to the Chateau d'Artelines to collect the money that he's owed. Introduced as a Baron to hide the truth from de Varze's uncle (C. Aubrey Smith), Maurice woos the smitten Jeanette (MacDonald), a haughty princess who is unaware the noble she has fallen for is just a common tailor. The musical that introduced the standards "Lover," "Mimi" and "Isn't It Romantic," Love Me Tonight is a dazzling blend of image and song that still delights today.
