Having struck gold in 1934 with Grace Moore's One Night of Love, Columbia Pictures hoped to do the same with international favorite Lillian Harvey in Let's Live Tonight. The story concentrates on a romantic triangle, with millionaire Nick Kerry (Tulio Carminati) and his brother Brian (Hugh Williams) both in love with gorgeous Kay Routledge (Harvey). One glance at the billing order should tip off which of the two brothers wins the heroine in the final reel. Oddly, the loser is the most sympathetic character in the film -- even more so than Kay, who comes across as charmingly cold-blooded. Director Victor Schertzinger, who'd previously helmed One Night of Love (in which Carminati also co-starred), also wrote the songs for Let's Live Tonight.
