Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The German musical comedy Guitars of Love stars Italian tenor Vico Torriani. The hero is garage mechanic Robert Trenti (Torriani), who dreams of attaining fame and fortune as a singing star. Heading to Rome to realize his goal, Trenti joins a musical aggregation called the "Hot Four." While touring the provinces, Trenti is selected for stardom by internationally famous orchestra leader Mantovani (who co-stars as himself). Elma Karlowa co-stars as Mantovani's femme vocalist Ilona Mirko, with whom Trenti falls in love at fade-out time. One wonders how the Mantovani depicted in Guitars of Love eventually evolved (or devolved) into the King of Elevator Music.
