With its charmingly romantic theme, effective stage action and abundance of spirited and delicate moods, this Parisian-flavoured libretto gave Franz Lehár every opportunity to display his talent. After the sensational success of the “Merry Widow” (1905), Lehár completed this operetta in only three weeks in 1909 and at first referred to it himself as „a slovenly piece of work“. Once again, however, impulsiveness and spontaneity proved to be the ingredients of an outright success. „The Count of Luxembourg“ is - with regard to its inventiveness, originality and instrumental colouring - on a par with Lehár‘s other international successes. This film version offers a wealth of artistic entertainment, with a superb cast that includes Eberhard Wächter, Lilian Sukis, Erich Kunz, Jane Tilden, Peter Fröhlich and Helga Papouschek.

“Erich Kunz makes a dapper and dashing but dignity-affronted Basil and nearly steals every scene in which he appears...An enchanted evening of romance and comedy with some of Lehár’s loveliest waltz songs delivered by a first class ensemble of singers.”
