Not to be confused with the like-vintage Diary of a Cocotte, The Virgin Cocotte was originally released in Berlin as Die keusche Kokotte. The title was meant to be a joke, since any girl who was a "cocotte," or courtesan, could hardly be expected to be a virgin as well. Actually, the manicurist heroine is only pretending to be a woman of the world. It's all part of a scheme by a wealthy businessman to teach his flirtatious wife a lesson. The scheming executive was played by Otto Gebuehr, better known for his many screen portrayals of Frederick the Great.
