"The Count of Luxembourg", composed in 1909, is a worthy equal to Lehar's other operettas in terms of imaginative content, visual ideas and instrumental colouring. After the sensational success of the "Merry Widow" (1905), the composer quickly wrote an operetta that displayed real Parisian flair. This film version offers a wealth of artistic entertainment, with a superb cast that includes Eberhard Wachter, Lilian Sukis, Erich Kunz, Jane Tilden, Peter Frohlich and Helga Papouschek.
