Parisian Life is a 1936 French English-language musical film directed by Robert Siodmak and starring Max Dearly, Tyrell Davis, Austin Trevor and William Hartnell.


A rich Brazilian, Mendoza, visited Paris in 1900 and was romantically involved with the star of Offenbach's "La Vie Parisienne" which was playing at the time. Thirty five years later, he returns with his son and granddaughter, who is engaged to a young Frenchman.




It is based on the operetta La Vie parisienne by Ludovic Halévy, Henri Meilhac and Jacques Offenbach.[1][2] It is the English-language version of the 1936 French film La Vie Parisienne. Such multi-language versions were common during the early years of sound.
