Movie Info

Professor Rath (Curt Jurgens) is a well respected botanist at a prestigious university. His love for an unfaithful misanthropic cabaret singer reduces him to a groveling codependent lackey. He endures untold humiliation until he sinks so low he becomes a mere shadow of his former self. In this remake, the ending is cheerier than the original 1930 version with Emil Jannings and Marlene Dietrich.

Theodore Bikel as a floorshow impresario and John Banner as the school principal perform with conventional competence among a cast of mostly callow boys.
