Such Great Foolishness

Such Great Foolishness (German: Die ganz großen Torheiten) is a 1937 German drama film directed by Carl Froelich and starring Paula Wessely, Rudolf Forster and Hilde Wagener. The film was set in Vienna, unusually for a German film of the time which had increasingly cut back on films set in Austria since the Nazi takeover of 1933.[1] The film was based on a novel by Marianne von Angern.
