Peter Im Schnee (Peter in the Snow) top-bills Traudl Stark in the title role. Despite her character name, Stark was certifiably female, and for a brief period she was considered Germany's answer to Shirley Temple. This entry in Stark's "Peter" series finds the little girl helping to patch up the broken marriage of her Aunt Doris (Liane Hald). Peter's efforts are nearly thwarted by Doris' divorce lawyer, who covets his share of a huge settlement. The plot is resolved in a tiny Alpine cabin, with all the adult characters darting in and out in the manner of a frantic French farce.
