Eloquent Carry Clips can find employment as a keynote speaker for every occasion.  His assistant Lillebil loves him, but he’s a confirmed bachelor.  One day, the strongly inhibited Professor Wielander engages him to give a lecture at the “Modern Club” … that is, hidden and speaking, while the professor mouths the words.  The theme of the lecture is “marriage”.  When the lecture is delivered, the Baroness von Lindenworth falls in love with the professor; but mainly because of his wonderful voice!

Der sprachgewandte Carry Clips verdingt sich als Festredner für jeden Anlass. Seine Assistentin Lillebil liebt ihn, doch er ist eingefleischter Junggeselle. Eines Tages beauftragt ihn der stark sprechgehemmte Professor Wielander, bei einem Vortrag vor dem "Modern Club" verdeckt an seiner Stelle zu sprechen – Thema ist das Wesen der Ehe. Anlässlich des Vortrags verliebt sich die Baronin von Lindenwörth in den Professor, doch vor allem seiner vermeintlichen Stimme wegen.

The darling of Vienna, Willi Forst stars in this fantasy musical comedy in the rare profession of the keynote speaker. After numerous weddings, anniversaries, baptisms and funerals, he also has to step in for a speech-inhibited professor in a lecture on the subject of "marriage". In the process, a baroness falls in love with the voice - and the speaker then has to make the professor's voice during a rendezvous with the baroness. Which in turn brings the girlfriend of the keynote speaker on into the charming conclusion.
