The English-language title of this German romantic comedy is Her Highness, the Laundress. That's the title, and that's the plot. Hansi Niese plays the title character, a humble laundress who tries to retain her values -- and sense of humor -- when she's suddenly thrust into great wealth and prestige. The secondary romantic plotline is handled by Else Elster and Fred Doerderlein, who sing better than they act. The mistaken-identity aspects of the story are played to the hilt, and then some, leaving the audience (and, presumably, the actors), breathless at fadeout time.
THERE IS A NEWSREEL ALONG WITH THE FILM, JUST AS GERMAN AUDIENCES MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN THE MOVIE WAS FIRST SHOWN (except this newsreel may not be contemporary to when the film was released).
DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH HARD-ENCODED POLISH SUBTITLES (except for the Newsreel).
