AllMusic Review by

One of France's most revered entertainers, Maurice Chevalier charmed audiences across the globe with his easy-going demeanor, debonair appearance, and amiable vocals. This 14-track collection, which features songs from the 1920s and '30s in both French and English, is an ideal introduction to the performer, as it draws from his film career in both Hollywood and Europe. Highlights include the swooning "Louise," the buoyant "Mimi," and the dreamy "Mon Ideal," all of which capture Chevalier's seemingly effortless charisma.
