  • The Love Parade is a 1929 musical comedy film about the marital difficulties of Queen Louise of Sylvania and her consort, Count Alfred Renard. Despite his love for Louise and his promise to be an obedient husband, Count Alfred finds his role as a figurehead unbearable. The film was directed by Ernst Lubitsch from a screenplay by Guy Bolton and Ernest Vajda, adapted from the French play Le Prince Consort, written by Jules Chancel and Leon Xanrof; which had previously been adapted for Broadway in 1905 by William Boosey and Cosmo Gordon Lennox. The Love Parade is notable for being both the film debut of Jeanette MacDonald and the first "talkie" film made by Ernst Lubitsch. It was also released in a French-language version called Parade d'amour. Chevalier had thought that he would never be capable of acting as a Royal courtier, and had to be persuaded by Lubitsch. This huge box-office hit appeared just after the Wall Street crash, and did much to save the fortunes of Paramount.
