Ernst Lubitsch’s 1929 film was the first Hollywood musical to transcend the revue format, snugly fitting its songs into a story about a Ruritanian prince (Maurice Chevalier) and his shrewish bride-to-be, the queen of Sylvania (Jeanette MacDonald). Made before the production code was inflicted, the film is rife with Lubitschian innuendo. 109 min.
