Celebrated German comedienne Henny Porten is top-billed in Wehe Wenn sie Losgelassen (Take Care When She Gets Started). The story concerns the bored wife (Porten) of a staid businessman (Bruno Kastner). Certain that her hubby does not appreciate or recognize her artistic talents, our heroine begins keeping time with a charming fortune-hunter (Curt Bois) who fills her living room with phonies and poseurs. When her husband shouts "Enough," the wife leaves home in a huff, determined to make her own living as an artist. After several failures, she decides to return home -- but, too ashamed to present herself in front of her husband, she disguises herself as one of the servants. Wehe Wenn sie Losgelassen was remade in 1958.
