Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Liebfraumilch was co-produced by its star, popular German actress Henny Porten, and its director, Gustav Froelich. As suggested by its title, the film is set amidst one of those Rhine wine festivals so beloved of German filmmakers. Returning to comedy after several negligible dramatic roles, leading lady Porten is truly in her element as a peasant lass who finds love and laughter at harvest time. He co-star was Willi Fristch, likewise very much at home in light comedy roles. Had Liebfraumilch been made a year or two later, it would most likely have been converted into an operetta.
