THE LOVE PARADE

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Starring Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald

(1929) “In all of Sylvania, there’s only one leg as good as this one,” boasts queen Jeanette MacDonald, uncovering one gam – “and that’s it!” she says, flashing the other. But even though count Maurice Chevalier is her “Dream Lover,” he still complains “Nobody is using it now,” in Lubitsch’s first sound triumph. 35mm print courtesy UCLA Film & Television Archive. Approx. 110 min.
12:30, 4:30, 8:30

“AS FORMALLY THRILLING AS ANY [MUSICAL] FROM THE ERA.” 
– Matt Prigge, Metro

“Made before the production code was inflicted, the film is rife with Lubitschian innuendo.”
– Dave Kehr

“The first truly cinematic screen musical in America.”
– Theodore Huff

MONTE CARLO

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Starring Jeanette MacDonald

(1930) On the run from her wedding, négligée-clad Countess Jeanette MacDonald trills “Beyond the Blue Horizon” in tune with the Blue Express that’s taking her to Monte Carlo, and to count-pretending-to-be-a-hairdresser Jack Buchanan (23 years before his second U.S. film, The Band Wagon), with their “Give Me a Moment, Please” telephone duet a further highlight. 35mm. Approx. 90 min.
2:40, 6:40

“The merriment in this film is like the bubbles in champagne.”
– The New York Times
