Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This romantic comedy closely follows the 1941 film It Started With Eve, and was expressly made to showcase the talents of Hans Ruehmann, an immensely popular German actor. Jonathan (Ruehmann) is a dying multimillionaire. From his deathbed, Jonathan's last request to see his son's fiancee is so urgent that the son cannot find his beloved soon enough and is forced to find a stand-in in the person of Eve. When the tycoon miraculously recovers, he discovers that he has been deceived. Given the chance to compare the two, Jonathan decides that he likes the stand-in better, and surreptitiously arranges things so that the substitute fiancee becomes the real one.
