Zarah Leander's greatest film.
26 March 2002 | by (Covington, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This is the best film Zarah Leander ever made. It is free of Nazi propaganda unlike Heimat and Grosse Lieb. Frau Leander is allowed to use all of her talents including singing and dancing. It is a shame that this was her last film for several years. She would have been wonderful in "The Merry Widow".
