Silent Alpine melo from the director to be of "Casblanca."
Escaping political turbulence in their native Hungary, Michael Curtiz and his star Michel /Victor Varconyi set up in Austria where Curtiz made a number of films with now forgotten leading lady Mary Kidd.

This one is a weepy melodrama with Varconyi reclaiming Kidd and her child who he had abandoned to marry well with Lilly Marischka . The spurned bride has her revenge winning him back in a ski resort and then casting him aside. Rescues in the snow by a wonder dog and a pursuit on skis. This last and the glimpse of Marischka's palatial home liven up an unsurprising weepy.

Director Cirtiz and star Varknonyi had polished their technique since their first efforts.

This one will have to stand in for the Mary Kidd collaboration as it is the one to survive and in a nice tinted copy with a slightly abrupt end.
