$13.99

Der attraktive Fliegeroffizier Paul Wendlandt und die Saengerin Hanna Holberg verlieben sich in Berlin, als er aus Nordafrika fuer einen Tag in die Reichshauptstadt kommt. Aber seine staendigen Kriegseinsaetze und ihre wechselhaften Show-Auftritte erleichtern regelmaessige Zusammentreffen nicht besonders. Ihre Hochzeit muss deswegen mehrmals aufgeschoben werden, und als Wendlandts bester Freund an der Front zu Tode kommt, will er sich von Hanna trennen. Er selbst wird abgeschossen und Hanna macht sich auf den Weg, ihren schwer verletzten Verlobten im Kriegs-Lazarett zu besuchen.

The attractive Oberleutnant Paul Wendlandt is stationed in North Africa as a fighter pilot. While in Berlin to deliver a report he is given a day's leave, and on the stage of the cabaret theatre "Skala" sees the popular Danish singer Hanna Holberg. For Paul it is love at first sight. When Hanna visits friends after the end of the performance, he follows her, and speaks to her in the U-Bahn. After the party in her friends' flat, he accompanies her home and chance throws them further together when an air raid warning forces them to take cover in the air raid shelter. Hanna reciprocates Paul's feelings, but after a night spent together Paul has to return immediately to the front. There now follows a whole series of misunderstandings, and one missed opportunity after another. While Hanna waits in vain for some sign of life from Paul, he is flying on missions in North Africa. When he tries to visit her in her Berlin flat, she is giving a Christmas concert in Paris. Nevertheless their bond grows in strength and arouses the jealousy of the composer Rudnitzky, who is also in love with the singer.
