Not familiar with this one. I read in Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide that this is originally from a TV pilot. It is barely an hour long.Sunday's Facebook Announcement:

I had never seen this film until I took a film course on musicals while on my sabbatical. The professor showed this the first week. When I saw that Chevalier and MacDonald were in it I scoffed. Then that first long take introducing the main characters and the film’s setting absolutely wowed me. Use of the song Isn’t It Romantic was just perfect. So glad that this will come to blu-ray. I hope it’s a good print because the 16mm print we saw in class wasn’t in great shape.Coming September 29th!

From Rouben Mamoulian, the legendary director of City Streets, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Song of Songs, Queen Christina, Becky Sharp, The Mark of Zorro and Silk Stockings, comes a madcap musical tour de force of infectious melody, effortless vivacity and ceaseless invention from first frame to last. Building on a foundation of songs by Rodgers and Hart (Babes in Arms, Pal Joey), Mamoulian shepherds Maurice Chevalier (The Merry Widow) and Jeanette MacDonald (Rose-Marie) through this exuberant romp. Carefree tailor Maurice (Chevalier) leaves a backlot Paris where music literally radiates from every shop, sidewalk and boudoir to collect on a past-due bill at a recalcitrant aristocratic client’s family chateau. Mistaken for royalty, Maurice runs a gauntlet of lunatic blue-bloods, including love-happy Myrna Loy (The Thin Man) and screwball icon Charlie Ruggles (Bringing Up Baby). But it is Princess Jeanette’s (MacDonald) closely guarded heart that Maurice desires and it will take every ounce of his ingenious pluck to woo her without revealing his well-meaning romantic deception.
