Song "There's a Riot in Havana"
- Herman Heyn
This is the song played on the piano and sung my Ramon Novarro. Does anyone know how/where I can hear it, or even just get the libretto? Your help appreciated! P.S. The Night Is Young is one of the most fun movies I've ever seen!
THE NIGHT IS YOUNG
saw this fabulous movie on tcm on 9/16/10. It is truly a wonderful find-music by oscar hammerstein, singing by evelyn laye and performances by ramon novarro, edward everett horton, a very young rosalind russell, una merkel, charles butterworth and mitzi too. I was however very disappointed to find that no vhs or dvd exists for purchase either at amazon or tcm. I hope this will soon be rectified.
What a wonderful discovery this movie is! Evelyn Laye is the most beautiful and talented singing actress of her day. I can't believe I had never even heard of her until I saw THE NIGHT IS YOUNG. Ramon Novarro is surprisingly good too especially when his character finally lets down his guard and expresses himself in song. Una Merkel, Edward Everett Horton and Charles Butterworth provide great fun as usual (along with Mitzi, the horse who trots sideways.) I only wish Una's character hadn't disappeared halfway through the movie. It is also interesting to see a young Rosalind Russell in one of her first roles as a comic grande dame. I'm glad I had the presence of mind to tape this and I can only hope that TCM will show it again for those who missed it.
