    This review is for The Love Parade, and why it is not in the RT database is a complete mystery. It was nominated for 6 Oscar's. one of the biggest hits of 1929 and is available on DVD. Go figure. 78/100. A charming musical. Outstanding art direction, costumes and sound, some really great songs. Suave performance from Maurice Chevalier, good support from Lupino Lane and Lillian Roth. Stylishly light direction from Ernst Lubitsch. Jeannette McDonald's performance is a bit wooden though. Overall though it is a fine film.
