Set in pre-war Hungary, Igloi Diakok (Students of Iglo) is a lightweight musical of the "Student Prince" school. The scene is the tiny college town of Iglo, where three young male students are madly in love with Eve (Mariette Gervay), daughter of the professor with whom they are boarding. Neglecting their studies, our three heroes spend their waking hours wooing and serenading the heroine. One of the three is finally expelled, whereupon he leaves Iglo, vowing never to return. Several years pass: As a result of the treaty of Versailles, Iglo is annexed to Czechoslovakia. The expelled student, now a Czech war hero, triumphantly marches back into town, where Eve is still waiting for him after all this time. An enormous box-office hit, Igloi Diakok was intended to launch the film career of 17-year-old Mariette Gervay, who immediately after completing this film was signed by MGM and whisked off to Hollywood -- and utter obscurity.
