Silent screen heartthrob Ramon Novarro (Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ) sounds off in his all-talking debut, a romantic musical adventure directed by Sidney Franklin. When Napoleon is exiled to Elba, loyal officer Armand de Trville (Novarro) manages to elude the firing squad only to find his heart captured by Leonie de Beaufort (Dorothy Jordan), the lovely Royalist who turns him in. Making a daring escape, Armand hides with the Countess Louise (Marion Harris), unaware that Leonie is her cousin. Leonies sudden arrival forces him to choose between love and war as he awaits the emperors return. Featuring a two-color Technicolor ballet sequence scored by future Oscar-winner* Dimitri Tiomkin, plus seven new songs by Herbert Stothart and Clifford Grey, Devil-MayCare was one of M-G-Ms earliest musicals, a box-office hit that ensured that Novarros career as a leading man would continue well into the 30s.
