Storyline

Prince Nikki, Lieutenant of the Guard in pre WWI Vienna, is flat broke, but the only advice he gets from his parents is either to shoot himself or to marry money. During the Chorpus Christi parade his horse accidentaly hurts poor Mitzi, the daughter of inn-keepers in a Viennese suburb, who is, according to the wishes of her parents, going to marry the butcher Schani. When Nikki visits her at the hospital, they fall in love, much to the dislike of her parents and Schani. Nikki's parents, meanwhile have arranged a prospective marriage with Cecilia, the limping daughter of a very rich non-aristocratic industrial. Due to the fact, that Nikki's father is a general in the Austrian-Hungarian Army, resitance is useless. When Mitzi, after hearing of it, is still refusing Schani's proposal, he vowes to shoot Nikki when he leaves the church. Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Trivia

Nicki gives Mitzi chocolates from Gerstner's of Vienna (Wien). Gerstner's was founded in 1847 and, by 1863, received Imperial approval as K&K Hofzuckerbäcker (Confectioner to the Imperial Court). (Mitzi and her family would not have had anything like these chocolates before as they would have only been an upper-class luxury item.) See more »

Fay Wray minus King Kong!
13 October 1998 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Lavish film by Erich von Stroheim with Fay Wray (minus King Kong!). Director von Stroheim should had used another actor (instead of himself) in the lead role. It's hard to accept him as a "romantic lead."
