Say yes at last is a German comedy film from 1945. Jenny Jugo plays the leading role under the direction of Helmut Weiß . The film remained unfinished.


Annette Müller works as a language teacher for French. Her grown-up students include the elegant councilor and the somewhat younger, reserved engineer. Both handsome men quickly fall in love with the lively young woman. But Annette has long since kept an eye on someone herself, namely a pianist who is currently earning his living as a piano tuner. In addition, he also appears in bars with his piano skills. After some recruiting, the Legation Councilor finally succeeds in arranging a rendezvous with Annette. The night before, the teacher had a dream: in which she is the bride of the beau of tomorrow, who has become ambassador in Paris. Annette sees herself as the main character in a lavish wedding party. And so the next day the young woman goes to meet the Legation Council very lively. When he misbehaved towards the pianist in the bar, Annette is no longer so sure of her feelings.

From now on she directs her attention towards the engineer. In her dreams, the man has risen to become a president who has made millions with a groundbreaking invention - he can make sound go away. In the dream this man only has eyes for her and offers her all his money. Annette dreams that she will use the money to buy all the tickets for the adored pianist's first concert in order to bring him an overwhelming success. But the proud artist brusquely rejects their help. Annette uses a ruse in her dream and "sells" every ticket at the counter for a kiss from her. However, the jealous engineer torpedoed Annette's idea by unceremoniously making every sound of the pianist's musical performance disappear. And so the young musician's debut concert is a huge flop.

Back in reality, Annette finally has to make up her mind. The Legation Council is to be transferred, and the engineer will soon have to go on a longer business trip. The pianist is also driven into the distance, having received a promising scholarship for a stay in Paris. Annette hurries after all three of them to the train station, still undecided who she actually wants. The locomotive whistles, forcing Annette's immediate decision. At the last second, she jumps on the train that is supposed to take her and her pianist to Paris.
