Love Me Tonight

The opening sequence to one of my favorite (and the most underrated) film musical of the 1930’s. Love Me Tonight starts out with a brilliant opening sequence of Paris awakening, and it just keeps getting better from there, with music from the incomparable Richard Rogers and lyrics from the ingenious Lorenz Hart, wonderful performances from Maurice Chevallier and Jeanette MacDonald and funny quips from the great Myrna Loy and Charles Ruggles.

The opening sequence finds music in the simple noises of everyday city life. Enjoy!
