Also known as Jennie, the action in this Hungarian romantic comedy is divided between two rival sporting-goods stores. Aleksander Zabczynski, son of one of the store owners, falls in love with Jadwiga Smosarska, the daughter of the other. Hoping to improve her dad's business, Smorsarska poses for a statue of herself, to be displayed in the lobby of the store. When the statue winds up in the wrong store, our heroine tries to smuggle it out of the building under cover of night. In true Lucy Ricardo fashion, Smorarska is caught in the act, whereupon she escapes detection by pretending to be the statue herself -- a pose she's forced to maintain for the rest of the story. The 1940 American film Jennie is not a remake, though there are a few slight similarities.
