This film, although it does not tread any new ground, even for 1935, has a lot going for it. There is the talented Wahlbrook, then still billed as Adolf Wahlbrück, who has good opportunities and makes the most of them. There is Olga Tschechowa, the archetypal nasty bitch, who even gets to recite her philosophy of dirty tricks to a charmed party of her invited guests. And there is the very young Luise Ulrich, who could be Judy Holiday's twin sister, just as charming, dizzy, and delightful. On top of that, we get quite a bit of scenery along the Rhine of 1935 and in the villages and towns, all historic stuff. Also the ship "Bremen" and a vintage Lufthansa airplane being boarded (complete with a swastika on the tail, in case you're squeamish about such things). Social manners of the day are also highlighted. In short, there's plenty to see. And hear, too -- the composer has done quite a bit of inventive scoring. Schubert's Unfinished also makes a brief but welcome appearance. Certainly worth a watch.
