Lilli Palmer wisely turned it down
23 July 2004 | by (Hannover) – See all my reviews

Ruth Leuwerik brought something to the strait-laced 50's that was unique: a touch of class and independence. Usually cast in soap-operas, often disguised as historical romances, she never played helpless heroines (like Maria Schell, whose tearducts must have near her bladder) or girls, who just wanted a husband, no matter what the cost (Sonja Ziemann was a prime example and fared well at the box-office).

Here's she is seen a prim and proper artist, whose marriage with rugged Carlos Thompson is already on the rocks. After some tame misunderstandings she was in his strong arms. Carlos Thompson added some extra box-office to the already costly show. Mister Thompson was brought to the country a few years earlier in the wake of Lilli Palmer's triumphant return as Germany's Notorious Lady With a Dubious Past. His ruggedly handsome good looks threw lady customers for a loop and he went on to give so-so performances as romantic foil and Ersatz-O.W. Fischer.
