Das Singende Haus (The Singing House) was financed in Germany but filmed in Vienna. The heroine (Herta Mayen) is the daughter of a hidebound classical musician (Paul Kemp). She prefers jazz music, but he prefers that she stay locked up at home far away from such music. In true Hollywood B-musical fashion, the old man is won over to his daughter's musical point of view, while she finds romance in the arms of a handsome swing musician (Hans Moser). Future international star Curt Jurgens (here billed as Kurd Jurgens) plays a supporting role. Chances for an American release of Das Singende Haus were hurt by the questionable political status of writer-director Franz Antel.
