British composer/playwright Clifford Grey was especially active in Hollywood in the years just prior to and following the talkie revolution. Grey's stage play Sunny Days was transformed into the 1927 silent A Kiss in a Taxi. When the movies learned to talk, he provided music and/or lyrics for Lubitsch's Love Parade (1929) and Smiling Lieutenant (1931) and DeMille's Madam Satan (1931). Clifford Grey returned to England in 1932, beginning a long a fruitful screenwriting career with the landmark "spy train" melodrama Rome Express.
