Gellebte Corinna (Beloved Corinna) was adapted from a novel by Robert Pilchowski. The title character is played by Swiss leading lady Elizabeth Mueller, whose second film this was. An impressionable country girl, Corinna follows her urban lover (Hans Soehnker) to the Big City, only to discover that he is already married. Her disillusionment is dissipated when it develops that the supposedly caddish Romeo is actually sincere in his affections for her, and that his wife is the real villain of the piece. Surprisingly old-fashioned in its approach, Gellebte Corinna nonetheless struck a responsive chord with its target audience.
