Poster WHITE HORSE INN - 1981

WHITE HORSE INN is a love story set on the banks of Lake Wolfgang.

Head waiters of the inn have found that to fall in love with the attractive young widow who owns the establishment is a swift and certain route to dismissal. Yet none have been able to resist Josepha, least of all Leopold, the present incumbent. She, however, pines for Valentine Sutton, a regular visitor from England, and is resolutely blind to all the evidence that his thoughts for her are no more than warm friendship.

The arrival of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor serves at first only to add to the chaos, but finally his kindly understanding and wisdom do much to bring about a happy ending.
