Taxi-Kitty is a comedy film and a music film by the director Kurt Hoffmann from 1950. The film adaptation of the literature is based on an idea by the writer Hermann Droop. In the main role , Hannelore Schroth embodies the unsuccessful musician Kitty, who finds a successful job as a lateral entrant in passenger transport .


The film is set in Hamburg. The young Kitty, whose vaudeville talent goes largely unnoticed in her branch, is accordingly without a job. Then she meets a taxi driver who makes sure that she can help out in the taxi driver's canteen. There she soon won the hearts of the chauffeurs for herself and studied new vocal numbers on the side.

When she makes a small appearance in a variety show, she wins the special attention of the agent of an artist agency that Kitty had previously rejected. Now the agent offers her a job, which Kitty refuses. Instead, she would rather stay in the taxi business and marry one of the drivers. Her sole wish is to be escorted to the registry office in a large taxi column with the one she has chosen.
