One of the most overlooked directors in Hollywood history, Rouben Mamoulian played a key role in the early years of sound in American cinema. With his debut feature Applause (1929), Mamoulian’s insistence on a fluid camera would open up new possibilities in storytelling that he would put to great use in films like City Streets (1931) and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931); for the follow up on the latter, the director would bring that fluid camerawork to Love Me Tonight, which would be the his main contribution to the Hollywood musical genre. Kino had already released the movie on DVD, but has revisited it for its Blu-ray debut.
