Music and lyrics by Noel Coward with special lyrics by Gus Kahn.
Bitter Sweet was the seventh teaming of MacDonald and Eddy, and their second film in Technicolor. The film was based on the popular play by Noel Coward. Unfortunately, it was their first film to do poorly at the box office. Despite the use of Technicolor, the story was badly hacked up by the scriptwriters. Many critics thought the stars were too old for the roles. Noel Coward cried when he saw the film and what MGM had done to his story. Overall, it is still an enjoyable film to watch today.
