Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The Swedish Hennes Melodi (Her Melody) is a showcase for one of Scandanavia's finest actresses, Sonja Wigert. The star is cast as Sonja Larsen, a poor girl pretending to be rich so that she can snag a wealthy husband. She falls in love with Curt Strange (Sture Lagerwall), who like Sonja is a pauper posing as a millionaire, for much the same reasons. By the time they discover that they're both penniless, it hardly matters: Romance has won out over Capitalism. Though the storyline is hardly new, Hennes Melodi seems fresh and spontaneous throughout its 98 minutes.
