“Isn’t It Romantic?” February 14, 2007

Posted by Jeff in 1929 through WWII, Movies, Musicals, Richard Rodgers.

Far and away the highlight of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart‘s Hollywood sojourn in the early 1930s, Love Me Tonight was directed by Rouben Mamoulian, who ten years later would direct Oklahoma! and Carousel on Broadway for Rodgers and his new partner Oscar Hammerstein.

In this sequence, the song “Isn’t It Romantic?” is passed on from Maurice Chevalier to the toff to the taxi driver to the songwriter to the soldiers to the gypsies to … Jeanette Macdonald:

Rodgers and Hart generously provided the music and lyrics for my unoriginal musical screenplay, Babes In Armor.
