Storyline

Frank Reynolds is a successful electrical engineer, who returns to his native town in Germany after 10 years absence. He falls in love with Regine, who is a simple chamber maid in his house. She lives with her drunken father and criminal brother, who extort housekeeping money from her. Frank marries her, and hires an acquaintance of his, an elderly lady, to teach her how to behave in society. Floris Bell, an actress who had designs on Frank, becomes acquainted with Regine, and pretends to be her friend, but secretly engineers a plot to put her in a compromising position. She gets a beau to take Regine home from a party, lying to Regine that more party goers would be arriving soon at Regine's house. The beau tries to make love to Regine, but is discovered by her lady companion, who thinks the worst. The beau leaves in embarrassment, and Regine goes to bed, but soon after, her brother sneaks in through the balcony and forces her to give him money and Frank's overcoat. When Frank returns...

Entertaining for fans of this type of film
4 February 2019 | by richard-camhiSee all my reviews

This film, although it does not tread any new ground, even for 1935, has a lot going for it. There is the talented Wahlbrook, then still billed as Adolf Wahlbrück, who has good opportunities and makes the most of them. There is Olga Tschechowa, the archetypal nasty bitch, who even gets to recite her philosophy of dirty tricks to a charmed party of her invited guests. And there is the very young Luise Ulrich, who could be Judy Holiday's twin sister, just as charming, dizzy, and delightful. On top of that, we get quite a bit of scenery along the Rhine of 1935 and in the villages and towns, all historic stuff. Also the ship "Bremen" and a vintage Lufthansa airplane being boarded (complete with a swastika on the tail, in case you're squeamish about such things). Social manners of the day are also highlighted. In short, there's plenty to see. And hear, too -- the composer has done quite a bit of inventive scoring. Schubert's Unfinished also makes a brief but welcome appearance. Certainly worth a watch.
