Jacqueline is a German comedy film from 1959 by Wolfgang Liebeneiner with Johanna von Koczian in the title role and Walther Reyer , Götz George and Hans Söhnker in other leading roles.


Title hero Jacqueline works as a young pop singer in the Schwabing pub "Bunte Kuh". In her job as well as in the male world, the pretty young woman has some success. The young, solid Gustav, a good-hearted young boxer who is notoriously broke, makes sure that nothing happens to her. One day Jacqueline met another man whom she found fascinating from the beginning. His name is Caesar Meyer and he is a representative for floor wax - at least he claims - and an alleged hobby author. In truth, however, he is a certain Paul Büttner, a successful and well-established playwright by trade. Above all, Paul has his eye on the pretty young woman because he needs her as inspiration for a new comedy. Therefore, the author, otherwise decried as a notorious womanizer, pretends to be Jacqueline's interest, which is why even theater director Zander warns him not to play the wrong game with the happy singer.

But Büttner is not deterred at first. The all too innocent Jacqueline, who still believes in the story of the (unsuccessful) floor wax representative with writer ambitions, wants to bail Caesar out and therefore passes the book written by the "hobby author" Meyer on to Director Zander for use. The matter is now too colorful for that, wants to tear down the lies and then clarifies Jacqueline about the true facts. The singer is pissed off and without further ado gives the double-faced heartbreaker a noisy whistle. Jacqueline is only appeased when she realizes at the premiere of the Büttner play that she is at the center of the story and Büttner wrote her a love song. Only now does Jacqueline understand that Paul really cares about her.

Paimann's film lists summed up: “So a small book with a big role for Johanna v. Koczian, who, assisted by her partners, gives so much personal information that one can have a very good conversation under skilful direction over dramaturgical cliffs. "

"Cheerful and charming staging of the familiar theme."
