Time Out saysHungarian fun and games perpetrated on an unsuspecting populace by Max Schach, the endearing little Viennese expatriate who charmed £2m out of the City to make the most exhilaratingly awful extravaganzas in the history of cinema. This one involves a dashing cavalryman hero, a school-girl heiress heroine - afflicted with a neurotic need to sing and dance even when they're on the telephone - stuffed donkeys, mad waiters, and myriads of satin-pyjama-clad starlets. Music-hall comedian Emney adds a bit of class as an impeccably English Hungarian millionaire, while the gypsy dances and masked balls on the Denham studio backlot have the surreally exciting quality of truly bad cinema.
