In keeping with its title, which translates as Tales from the Vienna Woods, this German operetta spotlights the lilting three-quarter-time tunes of Johann Strauss. It all begins when humble mechanic Rudi Walheim (Wolf Albach-Retty) inherits a title and a castle. Unfortunately, his new domicile is mortgaged to the hilt, forcing Rudi to cook up a few get-rich-quick schemes. He is helped along by Millie (Magda Schneider), a poor girl pretending to be rich, and Mary (Truus von Aalten), a rich girl pretending to be poor. It's anybody's guess as to which girl our hero will marry at film's end.
