Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Like many of its Hollywood counterparts, the German all-star musical Schlagerparade (Hit Parade) is more memorable for its individual components than the sum total. For the record, the plot is as old as the Alps. Young composer Walter Giller can't sell his tunes; his girl friend Germaine Damar sneaks one of Giller's songs into a publisher's office; the song becomes a hit, but no one knows who wrote it; by the end of the story, they know who wrote it. On this fragile storyline are hung 16 songs, each performed by an international musical favorite. Guest stars include Maurice Chevalier, Stan Kenton, Margot Hielscher, and the Barnabas Von Geszy Orchestra.
