Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having escaped the clutches of a white-slavery ring in They Were So Young, Johanna Matz is back in the "mannequin" business in Ingrid--Die Geshchichte Eines Fotomodel (Ingrid--Story of a Model). A wartime refugee, Ingrid (Ms. Matz) secures a job as a seamstress, working her way up to fashion model. Soon success becomes more important than anything else, nearly costing Ingrid the love of her sweetheart Robert (Paul Humschmid, who acted in the US as Paul Christian). Though the "reunion" finale is conventional, the lovers' method of perpetuating their romance is most daring for a mid-1950s film. Ingrid was directed by Geza Radvanyi, who'd previously helmed the well-received "displaced person" drama It Happened in Europe (1947).
