Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hans H. Zerlett was pretty near the whole show in the German Es Leuchten die Sterne (The Stars are Shining): producer, director, screenwriter. Zerlett, however, was not the star, that honor went to German musical-comedy star La Jana. What story there is concerns a pretty movie extra who is mistaken for a famous dancer, requiring her to head the cast of a star-studded musical revue. Among the guest performers in this glorified vaudeville show are tap-dance king Paal Roschberg and former heavyweight boxing champ Max Schmeling. Incidentally, the "Paul Verhoven" providing comedy relief is not the same-named contemporary director.
