Supporting actor Karel Stepanek emigrated during the nearly three years of production and was replaced by Rudolf Carl. Cutting and new shooting came to 500,000 RM additional production cost, because color processing had been developed further. See more »
The shooting of this film took almost 2 years due to ongoing innovations of the colour processing and some personal problems. Whether these were the causes or not, fact is that this a knocked together, as good as unwatchable bad film, that is far below the standards of director Georg Jacoby whose aspirations were already never that high.
With a clumsy told story, there is an incredible obtuse ballet on the grass, and Marika Rökk's dancing that is plumper than ever. Even Willy Fritsch and Franz Grothe's music can not save this one.
This film is worth watching for one aspect only: being the first feature in Agfa colour.
