The Love Parade 1929

Jeanette MacDonald, Maurice Chevalier - The Love Parade

Sparkling as Burgundy, and almost as intoxicating, "The Love Parade" is one of the outstanding pictures of the year. It is Lubitsch's most brilliant effort since "The Marriage Circle." The little director here conquers light opera! After the dashing nobleman marries the Queen of Sylvania, he gets durned tired of constantly obeying. So he bludgeons the queen into letting him be head man.

Maurice Chevalier, a great favorite after his first American picture, despite a weak story, is grand as the prince. His songs are triumphs. Jeanette MacDonald is an eye-feast as the queen, and sings well. Lupino Lane amuses. The music is relatively unimportant, although "Dream Lover" and "Nobody's Using It Now" may be popular. Don't miss "The Love Parade."
All Talkie.
