Movie Info

In this tuneful romance, a chewing gum heiress falls for a handsome young Frenchman and brings him back to America where he begins working in her father's gum factory. At first the father suspects the true intentions of his daughter's beau. But then he accidentally invents a new kind of gum--rum flavored. To promote the fabulous new confection, the Frenchman uses the love song he wrote for the heiress as a jingle. The heiress is outraged and vows to marry another. Fortunately, the suave Frenchman is not about to let that happen. The film's Oscar-nominated star, Maurice Chevalier sings four songs including one of his favorites "You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me."
