it Was the Cuckoo and Not the Lark
4 June 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

For his first sound film, G.W. Pabst chose a sure-fire property. He directed comedy and character star Henny Porten in this pleasant little farce. She plays a popular girl's school teacher, about to marry Oskar Sima. When she finds out he has a bastard, she fetches the child to her home, which causes all sorts of talk about her. By the end, after everyone has confessed to her, things turn out well.

It's clearly intended as a vehicle for Miss Porten, who had been a very popular actress since she had taken the lead in KOHLHEISELS TOCHTER for Ernst Lubitsch, in her sound premiere. There are three musical interludes, including two in which Miss Porten sings and accompanies herself on the lute, and there is a pleasantly mobile camera run by Fritz Wagner. It's no world-beater, but it established the star and director as capable of working in the sound era.
