Curt Jurgens was still spelling his name "Curd Jurgens" when he was featured in the Austrian musical romance Das Kuckucksei. The story begins when a groom-to-be expresses unwillingness to marry the girl of his dreams until he ascertains the identity of her mother. When mom turns out to be a showgirl of some notoriety the stiff-necked Romeo withdraws his proposal of marriage. The girl, played by Kaethe Dorsch, settles for a much more liberal-minded hubby, who helps her clear her mother's name. Peter Wehle's musical score is easily the best aspect of this by-the-numbers effort.
