Quick Overview

Starring Charles Boyer, Loretta Young, Jean Parker, Phillips Holmes, Louise Fazenda,

Eugene Pallette, C. Aubrey Smith, Charley Grapewin, Noah Beery

Directed by Erik Charell



Print: black/white

Runtime: 101 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



Charles Boyer played his first major Hollywood role (and gets to sing in the bargain!) in the

oddball musical romance Caravan. A miscast Loretta Young stars as young Countess

Wilms, who is forced to wed by midnight or lose her inheritance. She impulsively chooses

gypsy vagabond Latzi (Boyer), offering him a huge sum of money if he'll consent. Swallowing

his pride, Latzi agrees to the marriage, but soon the coy Countess falls in love with young

Lieutenant Von Tokay (Philips Holmes) — who is himself in love with Latzi's gypsy

sweetheart Tinka (Jean Parker). Director Erik Charrell, famed for his European musical

productions (notably Congress Dances), seems uncomfortable adapting to the Hollywood

movie-making process. Though evidently intended to be taken seriously, there are times

that Caravan comes off like a parody of operettas: one half expects the stars to join in a

duet of Cole Porter's spoofish "Wunderbar."
