Description

In the Austrian manor of Baron (Reginald Owen) and Baroness von Burgen (Olga Baclanova), the relationship between the upstairs aristocracy and the downstairs staff is quite positive. The servants seem to enjoy their time together, and some even fall in love, as head butler Albert (Paul Lukas) and maid Anna (Virginia Bruce) have done. But when lecherous new chauffeur Karl Schneider (John Gilbert) enters the house, affairs and blackmail follow, and the harmony of the home is slowly destroyed.
