Set in 1806, this is the story of Prussia's best-loved queen, as played by Henny Porten, one of Germany's best-loved actresses. The tragic fate of Queen Luise -- and, by extension, of her homeland -- is sealed by the weaklings and prevaricators all around her. Gustaf Gundgrens gives a masterful performance as the vacillating, ineffectual King Friedrich Wilhelm III. American reviewers paid homage to the film's excellent production values but felt that it was doomed to failure outside Germany because of its melancholy subject matter. The film was based on Luise, a novel by Walter Von Molo.
