Das Ekel translates as The Grouch; in any language, it's an apt description of curmudgeonly protagonist Adalbert Bulcke (Max Adelbert). A small-town bureaucrat, Bulcke carries his officious, obstreperous manner into his own home. His dictatorial edicts are subtly challenged by Quitt (Heinz Koenecke), the sweetheart of Bulcke's daughter Katherine (Evelyn Holt). Before even he is aware of what's happening, "The Grouch" is completely transformed into "The Pussycat." Of course, it <I>does</I> take a term in jail before the metamorphosis is complete.
