The original double-entendre title of this Polish operetta translates into the even more suggestive Love Maneuvers. The plotline draws heavily from such previous musical successes as The Student Prince and Daughter of the Regiment. It even winds up with one of the oldest ploys of all: The "masked beauty" at a fancy dress ball who turns out to be the virginal heroine. Lola Halama stars as the traditional hoydenish ingenue, who manages to straighten out all the complications and misunderstandings that have been playing across the screen since the opening credits. Critics in 1936 were impressed that the Polish film industry, traditionally one of the most austere operations in Europe, was able to mount so lavish a production.
