There are songs in The Love Parade of course, and Chevalier Chevalier sings them with that ingratiating, ingratiating, charm that earned him the name of .the "happiness boy of the boulevards."

In this production, he discloses discloses a superior sense of the de- •velbpmerit of. .sppfiisticatecT comedy that'.is thoroughly diverting and mirth provoking. It has brought musical .numbers to the screen story without the backstage situations that have as a rule been needed to insert a song in a musical film since the screen found voice. Then again there is another surprise surprise to the film in the work of Jeannette McDonald. Miss McDonald McDonald makes a. sOfrniog and thoroughly thoroughly captivating Queen. She has an innate innate sense of humor that fits nlceJj into the character of the Queen, who after all was a, woman at heart Miss McDonald's voice registers nicely both in song arid in the spoken spoken line. The Love Parade is a'tri- umvirate triumph for Jeannette McDonald, McDonald, Ernst Lubiysch and Maurice Chevalier.
