Director Manoel de Oliveira, who is still alive and active, had a minor role. It was the second Portuguese sound feature film. 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 and the poet José Gomes Ferreira. 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.
