Creaky old-fashioned sudser
Virtually rushed through her next production 'Ein Herz spielt falsch' while the excitement over her runaway success 'Die grosse Versuchung' was still hot, Ruth Leuwerik emerged as an absolute box-office sensation. Within a few month the elegant, regal beauty topped all popularity polls and went on to even bigger fame the next year.

A truly affecting performance by Ruth Leuwerik distinguished this old sudser of a rich father secretly bribing a young man to marry his daughter who had only one year to live. Love dawned after the hasty marriage, then she found out THE TRUTH, and - oh heavens, the agony of it all....They could have sold tissues by the boxful at every performance of this 40-carat weepie that kept Germany's womanhood in tears for month.
