German comedy from 1937 with stars Rühmann, Moser, Lingen
31 December 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A lazy young man (Rühmann) is thrown from university because of slackness. His uncle (Moser) offers him to take over his manor if he marries one of the three girls he picked for him. Instead he falls in love with a circus artist (charming Gusti Huber). (Theo Lingen plays the tap dancing and ear moving servant of Rühmann.) Can you imagine shy Rühmann as an animal tamer riding lions in a cage? - Although when he pretends to believe that the real lions are only faked, people in lion skins, it seems rather unconvincing and poorly written. All in all a rather flat comedy which is only sustained by the German star trio from the 1930s-1960s: Heinz Rühmann, Hans Moser, Theo Lingen. Good supporting actors play the circus director (Heinz Salfner) and the raw animal tamer (Gerhard Bienert). I wonder if there exists a better version than the visually poor/blurred with scratchy sound from ORF2 (Austrian TV channel). Only interesting for die-hard lovers of UFA comedies.
