Champagne Waltz (1937) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Gladys Swarthout, Fred MacMurray, Jack Oakie, Veloz, Yolanda,

Herman Bing

Directed by A. Edward Sutherland



Print: black/white

Runtime: 85 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Another of Paramount's efforts to transform Metropolitan Opera diva

Gladys Swarthout into a popular movie star, Champagne Waltz casts

Swarthout as Elsa Strauss, the daughter of a celebrated Viennese

composer (Fritz Leiber). American bandleader Buzzy Bellew (Fred

MacMurray) and his aggregation invade Vienna with their own special

repertoire of melodies, and before long the Austrian capital has

abandoned waltzes in favor of jazz. With her family's waltz palace in

danger of going out of business, Elsa heads next door to Buzzy's

establishment, hoping to persuade him to pack up and go home. Not

unexpectedly, the two fall in love (he even teaches her the art of chewing

gum), leading to a harmonious "marriage" of musical genres (intended as

the film's highlight, this climactic scene was mercilessly raked over the

coals by the movie critics of the era). Jack Oakie's performance as Happy

Gallagher does much to lift this predictable tune fest from the ordinary.
