Content:

In the lobby of the Hamburg Hotel Atlantic, Dr. Otto Dernburg and Consul Kottmann discuss important business numbers which are to be presented at the upcoming board meeting. The arrival of a very elegant lady, who has just registered at the reception with her secretary, distracts both men from the turnover numbers and Dr. Dernburg does everything he can to find out more about the beautiful stranger. Charley and his friend Ralf have made the acquaintance of Ulla and Britta, two young Swedes, who are also staying at the hotel under the watchful eye of Ullas Uncle Niels. The two men in love would like nothing better than to invite the girls to their shared flat. But the boundaries of decency and Uncle Niels strict supervision present difficult obstacles. Charley shrewdly says there will be a big social event in honour of his old aunt, who has arrived from Brazil to visit after many years Ulla and Britta are cordially invited.
Charley has no idea, however, that his old aunt, whom he last saw as a little boy, is none other than Carlotta Ramirez, the attractive lady who has already so deeply impressed Dr. Dernburg. In the evening the Swedish girls arrive at Ralf and Charleys flat. Strangely, all the guests and even Charleys aunt, the guest of honour, have to cancel at the last minute. Britta sees through the trick and wants to leave the party as quickly as possible. Otto Dernburg, who wanted to pay his younger brother a surprise visit, becomes an unseen witness to the conversation between Britta and Ralf. He grasps the situation at once and decides to act: disguised as a sweet old aunt, he appears, saves the party and philanders uninhibitedly with the girls. The situation comes to a head, however, when Niels Bergstrm and August Sallmann arrive at the party, in succession but it really heats up when the doorbell rings, announcing a final unexpected guest: Carlotta Ramirez, Charleys real aunt ...
