Description by OLDIES.com:
Rudy Vallee was one of the most popular and influential crooners of his day, a contemporary of Al Jolson. Rudy pioneered a soft style of crooning, and sung in English, Spanish, French and Italian, amplified by use of a megaphone, a technique which inspired future superstars Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. Already a huge star on radio, the 1929 movie The Vagabond Lover gave audiences their first chance to see Vallee perform, which helped make him an instant heartthrob of the day, with several hit songs featured in the movie, including "I'm Just a Vagabond Lover," "I Love You, Believe Me I Love You," "If You Were the Only Girl in the World," "I'll Be Reminded of You" and "A Little Kiss Each Morning." One of the earliest sound motion pictures, The Vagabond Lover is a rare glimpse at the roaring 20's.
A down-on-his-luck Rudy Vallee pretends to be a big band leader in order to get a job.
