The second in a trilogy of movies about Elisabeth "Sissi" of Austria, the film chronicles the married life of the young empress as she tries to adjust to formal and strict life in the palace and an overbearing mother-in-law.
I agree with the other comment. Interesting also for its depiction of German youth culture, "hippies" and this transitional era as a whole. Think Dragnet for the era but more Colombo or Kojak for the characterizations.
English-dubbed 16mm prints of various Der Kommissar episodes are in circulation, however usually in under-used archives, university German departments. Hard to find but available. On video, I do not know.
