Critic Reviews for The Love Parade
It's a fine, near-grand entertainment.
Made before the production code was inflicted, the film is rife with Lubitschian innuendo.
Combining the Ruritanian settings and aristocratic glamour of operetta with the lightness of revue, the film takes musical cinema out of the Broadway theatres and into a romanticised vision of the world.
Students of film lore will find much to enjoy in The Love Parade.February 3, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for The Love Parade
Dec 11, 2013I am really a fan of the Chevalier films. They have a modern quality despite the fact that they exist at the beginning of the film making era. Here we have a comedy of errors that is not tacky and speaks to genuine feelings.John B Super Reviewer
May 18, 2012lubitsch's first sound film and the first hollywood musical with integrated songs, it's delightful to watch and remarkably modern for 1929. the gender swap and 'battle of the sexes' themes would soon become de rigueur and the film's stars, chevalier and jeanette macdonald would have long careers in hollywood musicalsStella D Super Reviewer
Oct 18, 2011His introduction to Hollywood earned him 6 Academy Award nominations, and its glamour is shown since the very first, impressive shot. Random musical numbers were rare by the time but Lubitsch was careful enough to adapt them to the plot so he didn't resemble a lunatic. Joyous performances and funny in a pure way, you can really spot the elements of the romantic comedy genre in Hollywood. 96/100Edgar C Super Reviewer
Jan 01, 2011A nice musical, pretty funny, especially towards the end, but it reminds me of The Taming of the Shrew a bit. Anyway, it's a fun musical.Aj V Super Reviewer
