A best-selling novel by Ludwig Ganghofer was the source for Der Jaeger von Fall (The Hunter of Fall). Paul Richter heads the cast as pure-of-heart rice farmer Friedl. Falling in love with an unwed mother (Marie Sra), Friedl ignores her unsavory past and offers her shelter and comfort. He then sets out to capture notorious poacher Burgl (Rolf Pineger), who happens to be the father of the heroine's child. Burgl meets a sad but very timely end, lifting the shame of out-of-wedlock pregnancy from the mother's shoulders. Critics in 1936 felt that director Peter Ostermyer stuck too close to the original Ganghofer novel, sacrificing excitement for the sake of fidelity.
