Movie Info

The ever-adventuresome Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger are responsible for the British musical farce Oh, Rosalinda! Set in postwar Vienna, the film stars Michael Redgrave as Colonel Eisenstein, a military officer who because of a little legal misunderstanding must serve a few months in prison. While sitting alone in her sumptuous house, the colonel's wife Rosalinda (Ludmilla Tcherina) is romanced by American officer Alfred Westerman (Mel Ferrer). When the guard assigned to escort Rosalinda to prison marches in, Westerman, hoping to save Rosalinda from disgrace, claims that he's her husband, and winds up in the pokey himself. Later on, Rosalinda attends a costume ball, where she flirts outrageously with her own husband. Sound familiar? It should: Oh, Rosalinda is a modernized version of Johann Strauss' comic opera Die Fledermaus. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Oh... Rosalinda!!

All Critics (2)

Die Fledermaus has been modernised under the title of Oh... Rosalinda!! by Messrs. Powell and Pressburger, and except for Strauss's music, on to which one despairingly anchors, it is horrid.

June 12, 2018 | Full Review…

A light and amusing idea -- to set Die Fledermaus in modern Vienna -- is here trampled under elephantine treatment.
