One wonders sometimes if there were any Hungarian films of the 1930s not directed by the ubiquitous Ivan Szekely! Adapted from a play by Lajos Zilaby, Egy Lany Elindul (A Girl's Start) represents another felicitous collaboration between director Szekely and star Eva Szorenyi. She plays Janka, a proper young working girl who puts in extra hours at the office to support her ne'er-do-well family. With the help of her wealthy friend Dido (Marita Mezey), Janka is able to pass herself off as an heiress during a posh weekend party. Through various means, Janka secures responsible jobs for her family at her hosts' estate, and in so doing straightens out everyone's problems. As a bonus, Janka lands rich but lazy young Briggy (Antal Pager) as her husband, ultimately teaching him the pleasures and values of good, hard, honest work.
