MONTE CARLO (1930)
Monte Carlo 1930 musical comedy directed by Ernst Lubitsch. It stars Jeanette MacDonald as Countess Helene Mara.
Countess Helene Mara is engaged to be married to Prince Otto Von Seibenheim but leaves him at the altar. She flees on a train to Monte Carlo and checks into a hotel. When she arrives at the casino a count named Rudolph Falliere takes a liking to her and poses as a hairdresser whom she hires and falls in love with but could not marry if he is a commoner. Her fiance later arrives and takes her to an opera and she sees Rudolph there in one of the expensive seats indicating he is too wealthy to be a hairdresser. When he reveals to her that he is a count, she realises she can marry him.
The songs in the film were written by Richard Whiting and W. Franke Harling, with uncredited music by Karl Hajos, Herman Hand, Sigmund Krumgold, and John Leipold. The best-known song in the film is "Beyond the Blue Horizon" by Richard Whiting and Franke Harling with lyrics by Leo Robin.
