Production

The film, based on a play of the same name (Liebelei) by Arthur Schnitzler, describes an ill-fated love affair. A 1927 silent film version was previously produced. A separate French-language version – A Love Story (1934) – was also released, using most of the original cast.

The film's sets were designed by the art director Gabriel Pellon. Location shooting took place in Berlin and Vienna.

Plot

In Vienna during the late Imperial era, a love affair between a young lieutenant and a musician's daughter ends tragically when the lieutenant is killed in a duel, and the girl commits suicide.
