There she has to struggle with the movie's all-male crew, who all try to woo and win her.Written by

The first long-playing movie of Max Ophüls has not enough singing to be really an operetta, but both songs "Ich wär so gern richtig verliebt" and "Ist dein Herz noch ledig, schick es nach Vendig" are reprised several times. So sometime it looks like an operetta.
For sound track hunters (like me) there wasn´t any real loot, because all singing parts were very short and noisy.
An interesting scene was in a ´wave bath´, because I did not know that this kind of bath was already existing in 1932. (excuse my school-english)
