Austrian Poverty Row
9 March 2015 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting gender-confusion movie from 1934 Austria. We see a rather cool grandfather and his granddaughter Eva (with charming Hungarian accent). Desperate to earn some money, they first try backyard singing, with little success. Then Eva tries to get in the newspaper (selling) business, by ridiculously exaggerating the headlines. A customer complains, and in the ensuing chaos crashes a phone booth with his car.

Brief courtroom drama. Eva decides to become a boy (freckles and all...), picks the first name Peter, and even gets hired at a car repair/gas station. Of course, more trouble follows...

...including a doctor who has no patients, and Eva/Peter tries to help him. In many ways.

Or the ball, where (s)he is admitted on second try. (In a more modern frock.)

A quite heartbreaking scene is when her granddad and she are evicted from the gas station, and pull their wagon to (where?)

The doctor speeds by in his car, and crashes another phone booth...

Confusing, you say? I agree. Yet, this is a charming movie. Which in some ways reflects the confusing times it was made in.
