Excellent restoration of a German screwball comedy
14 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

The Murnau institute has fully restored this from several sources. The Coca-Cola poster mentioned by another writer here now seems to feature Wallace Beery, unless my eyes deceive me.

This is very loosely based on It Happened One Night, with a reporter rescuing an heiress (maybe), losing his job over it and fighting with the aid of two friends to get it back while his bride decides getting a divorce is the only way to get them both out of trouble. The lead couple's behaviour sometimes seems a little capricious in order to provide themselves with obstacles to keep the narrative going, but the actors look comfortable in each other's company, their two friends are brightly played, the dialogue rattles along as well as in any Hollywood product of the times, and there's one zany song and dance in a tiny apartment.
