Trivia

Sidney Bechet and his band can be seen in a hot jazz bar scene shot in the actual Palmengarten bar of famous Berlin "Haus Vaterland". The male dancer is probably Louis Douglas. The numbers include "Ich lass mir meinen Koerper schwarz bepinseln" (I'll have my body painted black!), a major schlager hit by leading man Willy Fritsch. See more »

Stagey fun
2 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is another stage-bound sort of effort from UFA starring Lilian Harvey and Willi Fritsch--with a dash of Heinz Ruehmann thrown in. The end result is actually enjoyable, even if the plot is hackneyed and predictable.

The story concerns a young woman who regrets being married to a much older man who makes toys. The toymaker suffers his wife's more suitable suitors, but it looks like the most ardent one of these might actually be a thief looking to rob both the toymaker and his young wife of their valuables.

The farce is played well and the chemistry between Fritsch and Harvey is, as usual, great. Lilian Harvey looks particularly good in this film in very chic deco-esque costumes. From the historical viewpoint, it's fun to see Harvey driving on the Champs Elysee in Paris in some location shots. Additionally, she and Fritsch are given some good pop songs like "Let Me Be Your Carmen", "I'll Go Fiji" and " An Affair On the Side Isn't For You". The end takes place in a wild sort of hedonistic nightclub that adds to the curio aspects of this film.

Ruehmann is funny as one of Harvey's hopeful admirers--and the ill-fated Kurt Gerron has a small role as a policeman.
