Karlek och Bensin
Even if you dont speak a word of Swedish, the bright toy-like graphics of this poster tell you that you are dealing with something fun. This is, in fact, a film poster for the Swedish release of the 1930 German romantic comedy with music, Drei von der Tankstelle (Those Three At The Gas Station). Starring in the Chevalier-like German actor Willy Fritsch and Lillian Harvey, an enchanting singer who traded her talents for Viennese opera to become a queen of silent comedy. The light-hearted plot involves three down-on-their-luck buddies who pool their resources to open a service station; each falls in love with the same free-spirited heiress. Of course it all works out - so charmingly, indeed, that the romp is still fondly remembered and revived in German retrospectives.
