Lieutenant Bummerli, a Swiss mercenary in the Serbian army, takes refuge from his Bulgarian enemies in the house of a Bulgarian general (in the daughter's bedroom actually), he sets hearts a-flutter, almost compromises three ladies and then ruins the daughter's wedding to a Bulgarian soldier-hero by being recognized as the fugitive! This is just as well because he and Nadina, the daughter, were destined for each other anyway.
MGM wanted to make a film version of The Chocolate Soldier in 1940 but Shaw refused to allow it. Therefore, they bought the rights to Oscar Straus's music and used the plot from Ferenc Molnár's play TestÅ?r. The film came out in 1940, retaining the title but with no other relation to the stage show. Therefore it is not included in this site.See more
