I love Martha Eggerth films. "Die Blonde Carmen" is priceless, and so are several others which are currently on YouTube. But this one --- cringe inducing from the first frame to the last! From the hideous black-face number in Paris, through to the equally atrocious depiction of native Hawaiians, it's too abysmal to be believed! Her male partner in the film can't sing at all, but he doesn't let that stop him. The stereotypes, the imitation jazz, the sleazy costumes, the embarrassing second banana's shtick, the brainless plot ... But there's no point in going into detail here. If you want to see my personal candidate for the world's worst musical, then this is it. But don't say I didn't warn you!
