A poor man's 'Madame Bovary'
21 July 2004 | by MauriceDeSaxeSee all my reviews

'Rosen I'm Herbst', even by 1955 standards, did not contain the freshest of material - in fact, it was hodge-podge of banalities, but it had the fresh, appealing and unique radiance of Ruth Leuwerik; a down-to-earth, human approach; a painstaking direction; a top-notch supporting cast and situations and dialogue that were often tender, touching and true. All involved managed to turn 'Rosen I'm Herbst' into a 1955 smash of major proportions. Critics and public alike praised Miss Leuwerik's fresh, if muted, beauty and her intelligence and radiance as Effie Briest, a woman trapped in a loveless marriage.

Handsomely produced with a lush score that considerably enhanced the sorrow-laden ambiance, 'Rosen I'm Herbst' proved just the ticket for millions of women, who had cultivated an addiction to watching Ruth Leuwerik suffer in that glamorous style for which she had become noted.

Miss Leuwerik, one of Germany's most ladylike heroines in the 50's, was a handsome woman, whose aristocratic beauty graced many such drama. She was also an excellent actress with a stage-trained voice whose timbre enhanced her pictorial image.
