Old Vienna, at a time when the waltz was considered an immoral dance. Maria promises her dying father, the Emperor, that she will follow the wishes of the Council of Ministers when she assumes the reign. Empress Maria wishes to marry the dashing Count Franz von Hofer, but the old fashioned Council advises against it due to his philandering reputation. The Prime Minister's daughter, Cenci Prohaska, asks Maria to help her marry her beloved Lieutenant Stefan Ravenne, because her father has plans for her to marry the rich, but boring, Ferdinand Hohenlohe. Cenci tells her that she wore a mask to waltz at the Golden Lantern and that von Hofer flirted with her there. So Maria hatches a plan to also visit the Golden Lantern in disguise.

Waltz with Me
3 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you enjoy old Vienna era music and dancing entertainment, then you will love this movie. This movie has it all, romance, comedy, drama, music, and dancing. I also found it to have some suspense in terms of what will happen next. I thought the songs and dancing very refreshing. This movie is reminiscent of another movie named "Spring Parade" starring Deanna Durbin. They both have the same ingredients as well as a beautiful singing Starlet (Empress vs. Peasant Girl). And, apart from the great singing voice of the beautiful Carol Raye, there is the added icing on the cake of the gorgeous Patricia Medina. Yes, it is a plot of Old versus New with added sub-plots of honesty, loyalty and misguided flirting. Don't want to give away any more of the movie plot than already has been. So, I recommend this movie to all who enjoy Viennese music, dancing, singing, the costumes of that era, and lived happily ever after.
