Love Me Tonight 09/19/20

KL Studio Classics

A 4K scan and remastered audio bring out the best in Rouben Mamoulian’s 1932 pre-Code marvel, the best musical romance of all. Does a musical have to have big dance numbers, glorious cinematography and stereophonic sound? ¬†Maurice Chevalier may be ‘nothing but a tailor’ yet he steals the heart of Jeanette MacDonald’s princess and shocks her titled, discriminating family. Forget MGM operetta saccharine and say hello to a sexed-up fling annotated with suggestive pre-Code dialogue and song lyrics. Some of the better naughty content is delivered by Myrna Loy, who was never as gloriously slinky-seductive. Isn’t it romantic? ¬†On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
