Popular German stage and screen comedian Theo Lingen handled the directorial reins of Marguerite Drei. The title translates as Marguerite Divided by Three, a perfect description of the dilemma facing the eponymous heroine (played by Gusti Huber). Marguerite would like to marry Wolf (Hans Holt), but first she must break down the resistance of his three overprotective, misogynistic uncles. To do this, she pretends to be three different girls, inveigling all three uncles to propose to her. Once she reveals the ruse, the trio realizes that they've been a bit too restrictive with poor Wolf, and a happy ending is had by all. Incidentally, star Gusti Huber was the mother of actress Bibi Besch.
