As the title indicates, the central "character" in this German drama is a Stradivarius violin. Somehow or other, the instrument continually brings bad luck to its owner, Hungarian military officer Teleky (Pierre Richard Wilm). Hoping to make a living as a musician after WWI, Teleky is forced to give up this dream when he is wounded on the battlefield. Adding insult to injury, his doctor (Jean Galland) falls in love with Teleky's sweetheart! Apparently figuring that our hero needs at least one break, the doctor gallantly steps aside, allow Teleky and his girl to enjoy a happy ending.
