Glückskinder (Original Title)

Gil Taylor from the daily newspaper the "Morning Post" gets to know the bag lady Ann Garden in court. He protects her from a quick sentence by an uncaring court simply by making her his new bride. Just as quickly, the judge ensures that a state official marries the two off, who, prior to this day, have never before seen one another. The result is a rather chaste married life. That is until Ann turns out to be the missing niece of an oil magnate and all is made right, not only with her family, but her new husband, in whom she falls in love for a very long time.

Glückskinder is first class entertainment, very well directed and has brilliant and witty dialogue by Curt Goetz. The cinematography is also very good. Furthermore, there are a couple of very nice and silly songs and dances. Note a hilarious court room scene, especially the judge played by Paul Bildt. He is brilliant. Masterclass in acting. Also, meal offerings at what seems like an ordinary tavern is worth paying attention to. Lobster, escargot, oysters, caviar. This probably testified to the German impression of America as a land of abundance and where sidewalks were made of gold.

I would like to draw your attention to one more thing. This movie is considered a German response to the 1934 American movie “It Happened One Night” directed by Frank Capra and starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. It is not a bad movie in comparison with the other Hollywood junk. I have uploaded this movie so a viewer can draw a comparison.
