Movie Info

In this delightful musical romance, Jeannette MacDonald stars as a countess who would much rather play the tables at Monte Carlo than marry a doltish Austrian prince. Unfortunately, she is on a losing streak. When the touch of a handsome stranger brings her luck, she hires him as her valet.

Critic Reviews for Monte Carlo

'A silly story, possible only with music,' yet what despair it masks

Full Review… | September 25, 2009

A fluff musical that never quite works.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Features the best screen performance by Jeanette MacDonald, an actress usually notable for her great soprano instead of for her acting chops.

Audience Reviews for Monte Carlo

Sassy Lubitsch musical. Jeanette warbles "Beyond the Blue Horizon," and Buchanan makes a rare American screen appearance.

this is the follow-up 2 the hit 'the love parade' another frothy lavish musical/comedy by the master lubitsch.

The pass of time has hurt this movie, as it is a little too dated for today's audience. Not as good as One Hour with you or The Smiling Lieutenant, partly because the male lead here doesn't have the charisma and charm of Chevalier.
