Eva is a German "inventory" musical, stitching together several popular Franz Lehar tunes into a coherent storyline. Playboy Georg (Hans Sohnker) is ordered to take charge of one of his family's porcelain factories. Reasoning that the workers might be intimidated by his presence, George assumes a false name and takes a job as a humble assembly-line worker. While in this guise, he falls in love with beautiful co-worker Eva (Magda Schneider, the mother of 1960s leading lady Romy Schneider). Anyone who's ever seen a musical before will be able to guess the outcome.
