It was the second Portuguese sound feature film (the first was A Severa; a 1931 documentary by Manoel de Oliveira, Douro, Faina Fluvial was originally filmed without soundtrack, which was added afterwards). In fact, A Canção de Lisboa was the first sound feature fully produced in Portugal, in the labs of Lisboa Filme and with Tobis equipment.
Among the team were some of the greatest names of Portuguese culture of the day, such as painter Carlos Botelho (credited as assistant director) and the poet José Gomes Ferreira (editor assistant). Painter Almada Negreiros was the author of both promotional posters.
A Canção de Lisboa is still one of the best loved films in Portugal, with several of its lines and songs still quoted. —Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is one of the biggest classics in the history of the portuguese film industry. It was a success among audiences back in the 30's and will always remain a symbol of our culture: with the city of Lisbon serving as background, funny college student Vasco needs to convince his two aunts from the country that he's already a doctor, while trying to conquer the lovely seamstress Alice.
