In this delightful romantic comedy set in the heart of Rhine River wine country, boyish Heinz Rühmann (The Man in Search of His Murderer) stars as a bachelor who stands to inherit the vineyards of Bockelmann champagne. But the inheritance comes with a caveat: he must abstain from any alcohol consumption for a full month—not an easy task when surrounded by some of Europe’s finest wineries. A boisterous celebration of the pleasures of German wine, Laughing Heirs offered American audiences of 1933 a welcome escape from Prohibition, and offers today’s viewers a fascinating view of the vineyards of pre-WWII Germany and France.
