Das Land des Lachelins (The Land of Smiles) exists solely as a showcase for that splendid Austrian tenor Richard Tauber. The plot is so minimal as to be nonexistent: Tauber essays his usual role as carefree interlocutor and last-minute problem-solver, singing merrily at the drop of a hat (and carrying his own hat). Though his heart is periodically broken, our hero goes on singing, which is really all his fans could ever ask for. The film was based on a stage operetta by Curt I. Braun, Leo Lasko and Anton Kuh. Richard Tauber also served as producer of this, his third starring vehicle.
