FROM A CONTEMPORARY NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
 
Das Lied ist Aus (The Song Is Ended) is a typical early-talkie German musical in every respect, save one:  The story, concerning the lives and loves of show folk, ends unhappily -- and surprisingly so.  The doleful denouement didn't seem to have much effect on the film's box-office appeal, since Das Lied ist Aus proved a major moneymaker.  Perhaps this was due to the stellar line-up of Willy Forst, Liane Haid and Ernesto Verberes, three of Germany's most popular screen personalities.  One suspects that the lilting melodies of Robert Stoltz (of Two Hearts in Three-Quarter Time fame) were also instrumental to the film's success. 

DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH SWITCHABLE ENGLISH SUBTITLES .  LENGTH OF FEATURE FILM:  94 mins.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SWITCHABLE (SOFT) SUBTITLES WILL NOT SHOW UP WHEN VIEWING THE SAMPLE BELOW.  IF YOU SEE SUBTITLES, THEN THEY ARE HARD-ENCODED (meaning, they cannot be turned off when viewing the film):
