Uli der Paechter (Uli the Tenant) is the sequel to the 1955 Swiss film hit Uli the Servant. Both films are based on a character created by Jeremias Gotthelf, and both had also served as the basis of the popular European radio series. Hannes Schmidhauser returns as Uli, a young, recently married tenant farmer. Uli and his wife (Liselotte Pulver) run into a streak of bad luck, which not only nearly destroys their farm but also their previously unquenchable spirit. Fortunately, things improve in the last few reels, enough to encourage distribution of Uli der Paechter in America, where happy endings were still de rigeur.
