Movie Info

Even without the benefit of sound, The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg seems to be inundated by Franz Lehar's unforgettable songs.

Its cutesy love story is too schmaltzy.

Audience Reviews for The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg(Old Heidelberg)(The Student Prince)

an early lubitsch film of the famous operetta. lucky for me it's the silent version ;) some beautiful sequences, especially the night scene in a meadow, and typical lubitsch humor moving the plot along. ramon novarro was very sweet as the prince! i haven't seen him before tho i understand he became quite famous as the new 'latin lover' after the death of valentino. norma shearer is ok but i thought she was miscast in this. at least i didn't have to hear them sing :p
