Most successful musical comedy in this season and by far the best. Real fast comedy put over with pace and pleasant lightness.

Setting gives ample space for backstage atmosphere and revue fillings with a Spanish taint. The whole is a splendid vehicle for Renate Muller in trousers who develops extraordinary talents in the nonchalent representation of a would-be unconcerned aristocrat. She sings with a small but natural and pleasant voice. Hermann Thiming plays the fool wherever the plot gives him a chance in the part of the original ‘Viktoria’, and he has lots of chances, overdoing it at times.

Reinhold Schunzel leaves no laugh possibilities unused and supplies a long footage of laughter with lots of novel ideas and hardly any empty spaces. Adolf Wohlbruck, the ‘suspecting’ lover, plays with agreeable unobtrusiveness. A good song is ‘Do Come Along With Me To Madrid,’ by Franz Doelle.
