Liebe, Tanz und 1000 Schlager (Love, Dance and 1000 Songs) is nothing more nor less than a showcase for popular German-based songstress Caterina Valente. The star plays a small-town girl who is tapped for big-time stardom by talent agent Rudolf Platte. That's about all the plot there is, save for a few peripheral scenes involving Caterina's disapproving father (Williy A. Kleinau, whose film career flourished on both sides of the Iron Curtain during the mid-1950s). Ms. Valente's singing is superb; as for her acting. . .well, at least she doesn't bump into the furniture. Liebe, Tanz und 1000 Schlager enjoyed a healthy second life in the then-thriving German-language cinema circuit in the United States.
