Fluffy Viennese super-operetta: among the most celebrated and sumptuous of the musicals that waltzed all over German screens from the coming of sound to the advent of the 'new' film-makers in the '60s. Attractions include Karl Hoffmann, one of Germany's great cinematographers; matinée idol Fritsch and his lady-love Harvey; lots of lieder, light comedy, pageantry, dance and romance. Ostrich-like escapism from ominous contemporary events, or dazzling entertainment of the first water to vie with Hollywood's best?
