The final title of the first world-famous comedian of cinema history was made in Austria. The main character is an aristocrat, who fells for a circus performer against the wishes of his unclde. Even though Linder’s personal life was a mess, and his movie career fading, he managed such skill and class in his final movie, that even Chaplin idolized him. His co-star, Hungarian Vilma Bánky soon went to Hollywood and became a superstar.
