This frothy Austrian musical concerns two pretty working girls (Hetty Mayen, Inga Konradi), who lose all their money at the racetrack. With no carfare, our heroines are forced to walk from Vienna to their homes in St. Gilgen, a journey that normally takes six hours by train. Happily, the girls find true romance along the way in the forms of Hans Holt and Josef Meingrad. The musical score is the handiwork of the talented Robert Stolz, whose catchy ditties and ballads more than compensate for the film's lack of story values and coherence. Critics felt that the film might have had possibilities outside of Austria, but only with some judicious editing.
