The Postman from Longjumeau (German: Der Postillon von Lonjumeau) is a 1936 Austrian-Swiss musical comedy film directed by Carl Lamac and starring Carl Esmond, Rose Stradner and Alfred Neugebauer. The film is known by several alternative titles including Der König lächelt - Paris lacht (The King Smiles - Paris Laughs). It is loosely based on the 1836 opera Le postillon de Lonjumeau by Adolphe Adam. In Eighteenth Century France a Postilion from Longjumeau is summoned by Madame de Pompadour to sing in her opera company, forcing him to be separated from his wife.
