Lumpenbal (Vagabond's Ball) is another early-talkie German operetta, with music and farce dispensed in equal measure. An aging roue and his son-in-law conspire to ditch their wives so that they can escort a pair of toothsome young sisters to a ball. The wives find out about their spouses' scheme and head to the ball themselves, compelling the errant husbands to take a run-out powder. The wives proceed to get roaring drunk, whereupon the homelier of the two is crowned "Queen of the Ball." Upon returning home the next morning, the hungover wives receive a harsh lecture from their two "pious" husbands! Didn't this plot later resurface as an episode of TV's The Flintstones?
