It was made by the German subsidiary of Universal Pictures in partnership with Tobis Film. The film's sets were designed by Fritz Maurischat and Gabriel Pellon. It is based on a popular stage farce by Ernst Bach and Franz Arnold, and was remade in 1952.


When his wife becomes suspicious that he is having an affair after discovering incriminating evidence, Julius Seipold manages to convince her that it is his innocuous assistant Max who is having a relationship. He invents a wild backstory about Max, which in turn fascinates the Julius Seipold's daughter Gertie.
