The "ne plus ultra" of Nazi feature films.
26 March 2002 | by (Covington, Georgia) – See all my reviews

An interesting view of life in wartime Germany. Zarah Leander sings some great songs. The are a few dull stretches mostly with her agent. This is the film for which Frau Leander is most remembered. It even made the OKW unhappy because it showed an Air Force officer spends the night with the singer.
