Storyline

In this light and lovely romantic musical, a Hungarian woman(Deanna Durbin) attends a Viennese fair and buys a card from a gypsy fortune teller. It says that she will meet someone important and is destined for a happy marriage. Afterward she gets a job as a baker's assistant. She then meets a handsome army drummer (Robert Cummings) who secretly dreams of becoming a famous composer and conductor. Unfortunately the military forbids the young corporal to create his own music. But then Ilonka (Durbin) secretly sends one of the drummer's waltzes to the Austrian Emperor with his weekly order of pastries. Her act paves the way toward the tuneful and joyous fulfillment of the gypsy's prediction. Written by Stephen Hawkins

Excellent Movie
15 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a crying shame the studio never released this on video...I have seen this movie and it is easily one of Deanna's best! Durbin comes off with even more of her famous spunk and "atitude" that we all know and love. Her supporting cast is first rate and the songs really add color and warmth to the picture. Set in Vienna Austria,this is the only movie where the storyline is contained fully outside of the USA. It happens to be Deanna's shortest film but it is not lacking in the entertainment department as it will have you chuckling constantly especially the beginning of the movie where Deanna's character Ilonka tries to sell her goat!
