Notes and Editorial Reviews

The glamour and waltzing high spirits of imperial Vienna are captured in this 1971 film of Strauss's infectiously tuneful operetta.

"A success, breezily directed. The starry cast is led by Ingeoborg Halstein, with the charm of operetta legend Fritzi Massary,, and all-round tenor René Kollo" (Abend-zeitung, Munich).

"Hallstein and Kollo combine dignity and elegance...Benno Kusche brings humour and charm, Dagmar Koller a touching quality, and Ferry Gruber is eternally Vienna" (Rheinische Post).
