While watching the frothy Germany comedy Meine Freundin Barbara (My Girl Friend, Barbara), one would never suspect that the Nazis had already been in power for five years. The delightful comedienne Grethe Weiser stars as Barbara, a theater usherette who eavesdrops on a spooning couple in the balcony. Knowing that the woman in question is married, Barbara reports the tete-a-tete to the woman's husband, advising him to come up with a plan to win his wife back. Part of the plan requires Barbara to pose as the husband's girl friend, so guess what happens next. Highlights include a pleasant lakeside romantic rendezvous and a chipper musical number.
