The all-purpose Hungarian title A Lila Akac (literally Purple Accacias, but usually translated as Purple Flowers) was trotted out for this musical romance. Much of the action takes place at the Casino de Paris, the gathering place for young lovers and ageing philanderers. All sorts of characters indulge in all manner of romantic escapes, with the dramatis personae ranging from a young coquette, to a jaded film producer. Director Mihaly Ravan evidently chose to allow the audience to guess as to what was going on, since even those conversant in Hungarian were confused by the mazelike storyline. A heavy reliance on trick photography proved a major selling angle for this frothy confection.
