*English by Adam Carstairs) - (1931)


rown Prince Georg arrives at an alpine resort to meet his fiancée, Princess Elizabeth. However, on the way he stopped to help a girl, whose name he did not discover, mend a puncture and fell madly in love with her. He announces to his father that he will not marry Princess Elizabeth because he loves another. A dramatic right spent by our unwitting hero and heroine on a mountain because of an avalanche: everything turns out right when Georg discovers that his heart's desire is, in fact, Princess Elizabeth.
