Priceless
3 March 2009 | by Kevin ClarkeSee all my reviews

This may be a rather 'simple' German filmoperetta (actually, the titles call it "A Gitta Alpar Tonfilmoperette"!), and there isn't much polish to the found in the direction, let alone the acting - or plot. But the film allows us to see two of the greatest operetta stars of the era, Gitta Alpar and Max Hansen (who was the original headwaiter Leopold in "The White Horse Inn"). Watching these two totally different performers is quite a treat, each singing excellently. Alone and together. But the moment-of-moments is when Hansen dresses up as Alpar and does a parody of her. That scene-in-drag is priceless (and can be found on youtube). It shows everything that was fun and marvellous about 1920s operetta. Everything the Nazis erased - and that never came back. Because who, after Hansen, ever pulled off such a scene in a later operetta? And who, after Alpar, ever sang operetta in this mad, over the top way again? It's a shame the film has not been released commercially on DVD yet. As a document of a forgotten era.
