A rich man wins a vacation at a hotel but takes it in the disguise of a poor man under the supervision of his butler. The hotel manager gets tipped off about the plot, but misidentifies a money-less doctor as the eccentric.
I saw this when I was a child and even today I can remember the title track and "Was Kann Des Sigismund Dafür, Daß Er so Schön Ist ?" which was translated into French as "On A Le Béguin Pour Célestin" .I can remember Josepha the inn's owner and her butler ,Leopold ,in love with her.Then the guests' arrival and love is around the corner;the plot is made of lovers' to-ings and fro-ings.Everything can happen in that inn ,even the emperor Frances -Josef can come ;this chocolate box Austria with its Agfacolor (like in the Sissi saga ,another dear memory) is as kitsch and as charming as the old Christmas cards.I wish I could see it again!
