Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Valentina Serova, one of Russia's favorite postwar leading ladies, heads the cast of Four Hearts. Serova and Ludmilla Tselikoskaya play Galina and Shura, giddy young sisters who fall in love with each other's boyfriends. Dozens of song numbers later, the tangled romantic webs are straightened out. On the whole, the ladies are more appealing than their male counterparts (Eugene Samoilov and Peter Springfield), who seem stiff and self- conscious. The sheer ebullience of Four Hearts compensates for the muddled plotline, which was reportedly just as confusing to Soviet audiences as it was to American filmgoers.
