Die Wunderschoene Galathee restages the legend of Pygmalion in turn-of-the-century Vienna. Amorous sculptor Victor (Viktor de Kowa) selects shopgirl Leni (Hannelore Schroth) as his model. Once his masterpiece is completed, Victor abandons Leni--only to find himself romantically attached to the statue made in her likeness. Giving up such delectable romantic partners as a countess (Margarete Haagen) and actress Victoria (Gisela Schmidting), Victor seeks out and rediscovers Leni, whom he now realizes is the true love of his life. Slow going during the "serious" scenes, Die Wunderschoene Galathee truly comes to life during its musical highlights, especially those involving third-billed Willy Fritsch.
