Chevalier's Persona

by Kate Fortmueller

In Love Me Tonight we saw Maurice Chevalier in the role that he commonly played in musicals in the 1930s: a romantic lead. By the time Chevalier was cast in Gigi he was no longer the romantic lead, but he still plays off that well-known persona. In this number we see Chevalier in his characteristic straw hat talk-singing about his feelings about aging out of the drama of young love and romance.
