Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally released as La Route est Belle, this French-produced comedy drama serves as a showcase for the talents of Paris Opera baritone Andre Bauge. The star plays Tony Landrin, a poor provincial youth who finds fame and fortune on the opera stage. His efforts to mingle with High Society are largely successful, but at heart he remains a country boy. Unable to find adequate facilities in France, director Robert Florey was forced to complete the film in 18 days at the British Elstree studios, which were then being rather clunkily converted to sound. As a result, Florey was never satisfied with the completed film, though audiences were satisfied, transforming the picture into one of the biggest hits of the 1929-30 season.
