In the front office of Famosa Film, various film posters indicate the kind of movies being made in Germany at the time, with fictitious titles such as "Die Schellenbergs in Neapel" ("The Schellenbergs at Naples"), "Die Jägerbraut ("The Hunter's Bride"), "Der Adler von Mittenwald" ("The Mittenwald Eagle"), "Der Fischer Struensee" ("Fisherman Struensee") and "Heide-Guitarren" ("Heathland Guitars").

An unusual romantic movie. Lilo Pulver plays an independent (for its time) dental assistant and hopeful scriptwriter who one day encounters the man of her dreams. Or perhaps she does not. Or perhaps she does.
The film has dated much less badly than other romantic comedies from this era. Amongst other reasons is that the central characters are not meant to be perfect, not even perfect for each other, and this adds a touch of realism that is very refreshing. The cast is excellent, in both supporting and leading roles - the leads are not completely overwhelmed by the notorious scene stealers Rudolf Platte and Werner Finck.
