There's quick editing in it ,in which the next scene jumps quickly to another as if you had missed something.Inspite of this it's still a good movie.After so many years abroad ,in the United state,Madga Von Schwartz comes home to Nazi free , at the time it take place, Germany to perform an Opera and sing the part from St Matthews passion at church.You see actor George Alexander welcoming her out of the train ,with Leo Slezak,in perfect phonetic English, better than Anny Ondras,at the train station. It revert backs to German. Earlier you see her daddy,played by Hienrich George, talking to friend, I thought it was his sister at first, played by Lucy English, about Madga return. Later you see Hans Nielsen, without mustache, greeting Zarah to tell her he's engaged to hers sister. Nobody knows yet she's Madga Von Schwartz. At a reception with some old biddies who disapprove of her, she sings a racy song to shock them after she tells every body who she really is .She later surprises her sister and father when she visits them after words. He insists on her staying home while she's visiting. You see Zara and her sister eating apples in the kitchen as they talk about old times. Paul Horbinger , again in a second time with Zarah plays one of her interest.Everything goes well until she goes to the bank to put her check in.It turns out that the head of the bank is her old ex fiancé, Keller,played by Frank Schaheitalin, who most of the time plays bad guys. He has a secret against her . He had gotten her pregnant before they got married and never married her.She has a illegitimate daughter that she keeps a secret.HE tries to black mail her to tell her father about this and every one else.Her father finds out after he took a gun with him to try to shoot him for his harassment against her. HE almost hits her in anger ,then he has a heart attack. In the play version he dies.In this one he lives.It seems some of the plot was borrowed from UN Neune Zern when Keller mishandles a check and is about to get arrested , by Hans Nielsen.WEll a Walt Disney type ending happens in this film.The father should have died. They should of had the Keller do something else crooked not to look like the other movie.Inspite of this this film was pretty good. Available at Warfilm.com with subtitles
