Storyline

In 1846 the actress Gloria Vane is the leading star at the Adelphi Theatre in London. She is in love with the destitute nobleman Albert Finsbury. He is leaving for Australia to become an officer in the Queen's Regiment of New South Wales, but promises her to be back after one year. His creditors urge him to pay his debt on 615 pounds before leaving. He gets a check of 15 pounds from his friend Bobby, but changes it surreptitiously to 615. After Finsbury is gone, the forgery is discovered. To protect him Gloria says in court that she committed the crime, and is sentenced to 7 years in the terrible Paramatta prison in Sidney. From prison she sends a note to Finsbury, asking for help, but he doesn't answer. The settler Henry Hoyer falls in love with Gloria. As this is a chance for her to leave prison, she agrees, but run away from him immediately. When she finds out that Finsbury is going to marry the Governor's daughter, she is heartbroken. Finsbury finds her and wants to run away with ... Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

Moving, and almost a timeless piece of art.
27 February 2003 | by Wolfi-10See all my reviews

This film was a sensation when it appeared in 1937; and 65 years later, one can still see why, and one is still moved by it. Despite some technical imperfections of picture and sound of those times, and despite the - initially unsettling - fact that it plays in London and Sydney while its characters and language are clearly German, it comes as close to a real work of art as a movie can. Both the tragic core of the story and its upbeat ending are entirely believable; the major characters appear human and differentiated; the sceneries and lighting are convincing; and Ralph Benatzky's songs have become treasured German folk music. Their presentation by Zarah Leander are the high points of the movie, when time stops and the here and now are forgotten. It is just a little sad that Leander's Gloria Vane was prevented from wearing a really shoulder-free evening gown, as those loud-mouthed boors accused her of. What some claimed to be immoral in England of 1846 was decreed immoral in Germany of 1937. One wonders if the '37 viewers caught on to it.
