Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ein Frau, Die Weiss, Was Sie Will (A Woman Knows What She Wants) is freely adapted from the Oscar Straus operetta of the same name. Lil Dagover stars as Manon Cavallini, a celebrated actress who spends most of the film's running time trying to stage a reunion with her daughter Karin (Maria Beling). She also hopes to "rescue" Karin from a life upon the wicked stage, and in this she's successful. Characters essential to the action include handsome wastrel Alex Basse, played by Adolf Wohlbrueck. Within a year or so, Wohlbrueck would inaugurate a brief Hollywood career under the new name of Anton Walbrook.
