Act I, Chap 4 - My Hero From: The Chocolate Soldier 4549 Opera legend and film star Risë Stevens leads a magnificent cast in this 1955 television production, produced and directed by Max Liebman. Based on George Bernard Shaw's "Arms and the Man," The Chocolate Soldier is one of the most popular operettas of all time; on Broadway alone, it received seven productions over a period of 40 years. Stevens is partnered by the delightful musical comedy star Eddie Albert, and the cast also features the beloved baritone Earl Wrightson and the popular character actor Akim Tamiroff. Interestingly, Risë Stevens made her Hollywood debut in a 1941 film version of The Chocolate Soldier that employed much of Straus' score, but followed a completely different storyline. Liebman's television production restores the original plot and characters, and faithfully conveys the romance and good humor of the Viennese operetta tradition.
