| Shouldn't Be Forgotten
I decided to watch this movie on TCM only because I enjoy Una Merkel and had never seen Ramon Novarro in a "talkie". Other than that,I was expecting a soon-to-be-forgotten piece of fluff. Instead, I discovered a beautifully done film which combined music, romance, and comedy with a bittersweet dramatic ending.

As noted by others, Novarro was excellent, Merkel was delightful, and the supporting cast of Charles Butterworth, Edward Everett Horton, Herman Bing, and Henry Stephenson all gave strong performances. But, the accolades belong to Evelyn Laye as the woman who steals Novarro's heart. Like a few of the other reviewers, I, too, had never heard of Ms Laye although I have since learned that she was a big stage star in England before and after this movie. And, it's easy to see why. She was beautiful, charming,had a fine singing voice, and was a talented actress.

Similar in theme to Old Heidelberg, The Student Prince, and even Erich von Stroheim's The Wedding March, The Night Is Young has a charm of its own. It does not deserve to be forgotten.
