This all-too-typical Austrian operetta combines elements from several previous musical successes. The heroine, played by Gusti Huber, is the adopted daughter of wealthy widow Sylvia von Polonska (Olga Tshechowa). The latter is in love with much-younger cabdriver (with a college degree) Dr. Hartenegg (Wolf-Albach Retty), but he rather prefers the daughter. After a cluster of complications, true love prevails and the widow philosophically moves on to other sexual conquests. Leo Slezak, the opera-star father of Walter Slezak, steals the show as the cab driver's wheeler-dealer best buddy. And just in case there was any doubt, the title translates as Waltz Around the Stefanstower.
