The popular songwriting duo Rodgers & Hart wrote this enduring love ballad for the 1932 film Love Me Tonight
, starring Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald. Chevalier plays a Parisian tailor who poses as a baron and wins the affection of a princess, played by MacDonald. His version
of "Isn't It Romantic?," which relishes all of the servant-like tasks his lover will perform for him, including scrubbing the floor and cooking him onion soup, is much different than the published version about falling in love under the moonlight. Chevalier introduces the tune in the tailor shop and several other characters pick it up and pass it along until it ends up with MacDonald.
