This film is about the life of Johann Strauss Jr. Horst Bucholz is good in this role. He ages well over the course of the film.

Mary Costa plays his eventual wife Jetty. Miss Costa was an international sensation in her day as a major opera star. Her beautiful soprano voice is heard on the soundtrack here.

The direction here is unintentionally funny.

The music and the singing by Miss Costa are the main attraction of this film.
