Operetta gem
Hawkeye | Tulsa, Oklahoma | 12/25/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 1971 film version with excellent picture and sound. Anna Moffo is the csardasfurstin (gypsy princess)-- a "lady of the stage" cabaret performer who charms a young Budapest aristocrat (Rene Kollo, who is already engaged to a lady of his class) into a socially awkward marriage proposal. Attractive settings and costumes complement the Eastern European flavor of the music and the light social commentary on class hypocrisy in this delightful production of Emmerich Kalman's 1915 operetta."
Great burlesque operetta!

"Well, at least one prior reviewer seemed disgruntled. As an Anna Moffo fan, I think her attempt at burlesque comedy was quite gutsy & admirable. She's exquisitely beautiful and her voice is in excellent form. Keep in mind, she's not singing "La Traviata" here and it's German language. I really enjoyed hearing her speak German throughout the film which is a difficult language and she's very good. The actors are well-cast and the storyline is delightful. The melodies are simply beautiful and I found myself humming a couple of the tunes for several days. I do admit it was hard to picture our lovely Ms. Moffo as a showgirl, but she pulls it off with regal dignity even in those skimpy burlesque costumes. The male tenor was fabulous and his voice melded exquisitely with Moffo. Print and sound quality are outstanding. Deutsche Grammophon apparently corrected the prior major issue - German and English subtitles are offered now. Overall, a very enjoyable film with excellent singing."
Always loved this movie

"I've always loved this movie, ever since I saw it for the first time in movie theaters many years ago. I love Kalman's music, I loved everything about the production. I've been hoping for years to watch it again either on TV, on VCR or the DVD. So when I saw the DVD it was the dream come true.

Edited the review because when I wrote it I didn't know how to use the subtitles. Would change the ratings to 5 stars but not sure how to do it."
A feast for eye and ear
amateur historian | Miami, Florida | 02/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful movie performance of Imre Kalman's masterpiece. Anna Moffo sings the role of Silva beautifully, and Dagmar Koller's performance as her rival Stasi is just as good. Silva's costumes show more flesh than would have been tolerated in Franz-Josef's Vienna: that's why the operetta is set in Budapest! Moffo looks great in next to nothing! The movie format allows for a grand tour of the gorgeous Lippert-Wylersheim estate in act 2."
