In 1934's Caravan Boyer had his first major Hollywood role.

Loretta Young stars as a young Countess who must marry by midnight or lose her inheritance. On a whim she chooses gypsy vagabond Latzi (Boyer), offering him a huge sum of money if he'll consent. Swallowing his pride, Latzi agrees to the marriage, but soon the Countess falls in love with young Lieutenant Von Tokay (Philips Holmes) -- who is himself in love with Latzi's gypsy sweetheart Tinka (Jean Parker).

Caravan comes off like a parody of operettas, and is just generally an odd film - not really an auspicious beginning to Boyer's American film star status.
