Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of this Austrian musical comedy translates to Seven Years Bad Luck. The film is a remake of a pre-war film, which was also written and directed by the prolific Ernst Marischka. Adrian Hoven stars as Heinz Kersten, a successful and seemingly self-confidant composer. Alas, Kersten suffers a streak of bad luck, and for a while it looks like he'll never be on top again. But things turn out OK not only for the hero, but also for heroine and a brace of secondary lovers. The film's highlight is a full-scale performance by Vienna Volksopera ballet.
