Outwitted

Leo Tscherning, 1912, 13 min

Karen has three tenacious suitors who woo her with great eagerness: lieutenant Schaleton, the poet Scherning and property owner Arnold. One day, her friend Ebba arrives from America, and friends and acquaintances are invited to a party. To find out if her many suitors are only interested in Karen’s money, she pretends, during the party, to get a letter telling her that she has gone bankrupt.
