The Love Parade

The Love Parade

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch • 1929 • United States
Starring Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette MacDonald, Lupino Lane

Ernst Lubitsch’s first “talking picture” was also Hollywood’s first movie musical to integrate songs with narrative. Additionally, THE LOVE PARADE made stars out of toast-of-Paris Maurice Chevalier and girl-from-Philly Jeanette MacDonald, cast as a womanizing military attaché and the man-hungry queen of “Sylvania.” With its naughty innuendo and satiric romance, THE LOVE PARADE opened the door for a decade of witty screen battles of the sexes.
