Did You Know?


Risë Stevens' rendition of "America the Beautiful" (music by Samuel A. Ward, lyrics by Katharine Lee Bates) was deleted from this movie. Footage of the anthem would appear in a short subject titled We Must Have Music (1942), a cavalcade of clips from MGM musicals between 1929 and 1941. Also contained in the short were Miss Stevens and Nelson Eddy singing the last few stanzas of "My Hero," taken from this feature. See more »

Excellent Musical Fluff
14 March 2004 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of those forgotten musical comedies from the vaults that is well worth taking the time to sit back and watch. The set-up for the plot takes a little more time than it should, but once the deceptions begin, the banter and the inter-play between Nelson Eddy and Rise Stevens carry the show. Nelson Eddy is in fine voice, and Rise Stevens' sparklingly burnished vocal range and comedic talent shouldn't be missed. 'The Chocolate Soldier' is well-filmed and crisply edited, presented in glorious black and white. The costumes alone should have merited a Technicolor production.
