Trivia

This is the first Warner Brothers film to begin with the famous Warners fanfare, which was composed by Max Steiner. The fanfare had a bombastic beginning but no real end, as it was meant to transpose into the music of the picture it introduced, which led to new and creative chord modulations in each film in which it was featured.

An enthusiastic review.
25 December 1999 | by (Slough, England) – See all my reviews

"Tovarich" was the sort of film Hollywood loved making -- light entertainment, a piece of fluff -- but with a subtle edge lacking in many other films of its era. This is a film that will make you smile, laugh and even choke up a bit. The performances are all brilliant and you would be hard pressed to dislike any character for long, even the 'villain' of the piece. This film even manages to convey its 'message' without being overbearing and destroying the humour. One of my all-time favourites.
