The Fourth Lady

DK/FeatureComedy, Romantic comedySilent films

For his regiment’s 50th anniversary, Colonel Meyerink’s plans include an equestrian quadrille performed by teams of ladies and gentlemen. When he needs a fourth lady to make up the women’s team, Lieutenant Wolff is quick to promise that his sister, Leoni, will take part – without, however, having asked her first. She turns out to have other plans, so to save face Wolff must persuade his friend Felix to dress up and come as Leoni. The situation is further complicated when, on the train journey to the regimental celebrations, the disguised Felix meets Leoni, who has decided to come anyway.
