Let's Live Tonight is a 1935 American musical comedy film directed by Victor Schertzinger and starring Lilian Harvey, Tullio Carminati and Janet Beecher. The film was made as part of an unsuccessful attempt to establish Harvey, who was a top box office draw in Germany, as a major star in Hollywood. Harvey was under contract to Fox Film, but was loaned out to Columbia Pictures for the production.[1] After making it, Harvey returned to Europe, first to Britain to appear in Invitation to the Waltz[2] and then to Germany, where she starred in Black Roses, which relaunched her German career.
