It must be noted that the "Paul Verhoeven" credited with the direction of the German Palace Scandal is not the current Dutch director of Robocop and Basic Instinct fame. Now that that's been established, on to the plot. Set in the 19th century, this amiable comedy stars Elfie Meyerhoffer as Christine Holm, a popular singer who returns to her hometown. Christine wants to learn the true identity of her father, and when she does, it's quite a jolt for everyone concerned. A clue to daddy's identity can be found in the film's title. Filmed in eye-pleasing Agfacolor, Palace Scandal might have made an entertaining operetta with the addition of a few more songs.
