Product Notes

Opera star Rise Stevens makes her big-screen debut opposite Nelson Eddy in this rollicking adaptation of Ferenc Molneír's the Guardsman set to the Chocolate Soldier's glorious score. Hungary's most popular musical comedy team Karl Lang (Eddy) and Maria Lanyi (Stevens) are married to the stage as well as to each other. But after six months of wedded bliss Karl convinces himself that his flirtatious wife is planning to leave him. Deciding to put Maria's loyalty to the test he woos her in the guise of a Russian guardsman unaware she's seen through his act and is pretending to fall for his charms just to teach him a lesson. Able to attain the rights to the Chocolate Soldier's music but not the George Bernard Shaw play on which it was based M-G-M grafted the operetta's songs onto the Molneír play creating a sparkling musical comedy that received three Oscarnominations: Best B&W Cinematography Best Sound Recording and Best Musical Scoring.
