Under-sung director Rouben Mamoulian's innovative, genre-defining musical is a spicy pre-code romp with a tuneful Richard Rogers & Lorenz Hart score, including the title song and "Isn't It Romantic?" Maurice Chevalier stars as a tailor who poses as a nobleman and Jeanette MacDonald as a princess with whom he falls in love. Myrna Loy also appears, as does C. Aubrey Smith.
In 1990, the United States Library of Congress selected LOVE ME TONIGHT for preservation in the National Film Registry as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
