Hugo Haas, one of the cinema's most consistently poor directors, continues to bat 1,000 with this useless piece of drivel. Haas stars as a kind-hearted old watchmaker who hires Michaels and soon works up the courage to ask her to marry him. She agrees, but before long her ex-lover's cousin

is threatening blackmail. Haas kills him and the lover is tried for the crime. The guilty Haas, no longer able to bear the weight of his suffering, kills himself. Michaels is simply bad (though who wouldn't be under Haas' direction?), and it is incomprehensible that she could make a dog heel, much
