Elizza La Porta,
This turns out to be a bland historical romance with a few songs but no duel, no ball and no battle - disappointing in the line of (second billed under Christians) Veidt's work.
Disbanded by Napoleon, Conrad's black Hussars, with their skull and cross bones caps, are still given the mission of rescuing the princess, who the Emperor is trying to marry off with Polish nobleman Chmara, and take her back to their duke, Lamprecht regular Goetzke, who just manages to beat the end title onto the screen. Lots of would be comic impersonations.
The film is handsomely mounted on a small scale by the great Rohrig & Herlth team and was probably nicely filmed by Franz Planer, even if the U-Tube copy is fuzzy and wobbles as if it was copied off a projection on a bed sheet.
