This is a light romantic story (operetta originally) filled with melodies such as the lovely "I'll See You Again" sung by Sarah (Anna Neagle). The tale begins with Sarah, now older, reminiscing about her first love. As a young girl Sarah falls in love with Carl, a musician, and runs off with him to Vienna. They are happily wed and Carl earns a living conducting a small orchestra Viennese style. Enter a certain Captain who sets his eye on Sarah and proceeds to shower her with his attentions, much to her dismay.
This film is almost an early version of "Maytime" (1937) which starred Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, as they are similar yet vary in the plot line. Needless to say I like them both a great deal.
If you enjoy musicals with gentle charm and are 'oh so romantic', do try to see this one.
