Trivia

When the stage version of "The Chocolate Soldier" premiered, it was as a musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's satirical play "Arms and the Man". Shaw strongly voiced his outrage over the way his play had been adapted and forbade any other musical adaptations of his plays (at least, as long as he was alive). "The Chocolate Soldier" had already been made into a silent film using the plot of Shaw's "Arms and the Man" (The Chocolate Soldier (1914)), but when this film was made, the plot of Ferenc Molnar's "The Guardsman" was used so as not to further offend Shaw, who was still alive.

fun and rather sweet
27 September 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A mix of the operetta The Chocolate Soldier and the play The Guardsman, this is one for those of us with incurably romantic hearts ... Eddy is as reliable as ever (The Song of the Flea and Sympathy especially good) and Rise Stevens in her debut film is pretty, witty and charming, as well as being in fabulous voice. One for rainy winter afternoons.
