Most of the music is sung by the Comedian Harmonists - the sweet "Wind Wafts over the Sea" and the rousing "Way of the Sailor".

Storyline

The captain of a battleship of a small Balkan country is fed up with following strange orders from the country's queen, who wants to make a cruise to the Med inspite of the fact that the country is broke and the crew didn't get its salary. So he decides to disobey orders and commands his ship to Monte Carlo, but the queen decides to go there too. He loses his money there at the casino, but the queen falls in love with him.

Cute!
13 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This peppy little fantasy with songs is like Weimar Germany's answer to the Jeanette MacDonald-Maurice Chevalier musicals (the story actually bears similarities to "The Love Parade.") It's easy to see from this why Anna Sten was brought to Hollywood as a Marlene Dietrich clone, as the resemblance is truly uncanny. Peter Lorre (fresh from "M") is adorable in his little sailor costume, and there's even a glimpse of the Comedian Harmonists!
