Based on the continental musical Waltzes from Vienna, this is the story of the "Waltz Kings," Johann Strauss Sr. (Hans Junkerman) and Junior (Gustav Froelich). Jealous of his son's talents, Strauss Sr. forbids the lad to have anything to do with music. Junior disregards these orders and soon surpasses his dad's popularity. The film ends with a tearful reunion between the two Strausses as Senior breathes his last on his deathbed. An English-language version of Waltzes from Vienna was produced in 1933, with an uncomfortable Alfred Hitchcock in the director's chair.
