Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Die Lustigen Weiber von Wien (The Merry Wives of Vienna) is all about the romance between Viennese official Leitner (Paul Hoerbinger) and vaudeville headliner Theresa Zalenka (Cordy Milowich). Leitner's ten -- count 'em ten -- daughters disapprove of the union and intend to teach their father a lesson. The girls form a vaudeville act of their own, threatening to continue "trodding the boards" until daddy breaks it off with Theresa. A subplot concerns the girls' dancing teacher (Willy Forst) and his sweetheart (Lee Parry), who is jealous of all ten "merry wives." In case it isn't obvious from the synopsis, this film is a musical comedy, with ample supplies of both commodities.
