De verloofde uit Canada (The Fiance from Canada)

Edition 1986
45' - 1934 - Comedy - Dialogue: Dutch
Director: François Frijters Composer: J. Antoon Zwijsen With: Louis Staal, Georges Van Bergen, Betty Van Hemelrijck, John Van Hemelrijck

The Fiance from Canada is the story of a young man from Antwerp, who returns to Belgium after having emigrated to Canada. But at his arrival, he learns that his girlfriend has left him for another man. He decides to go back to Canada ...

Anna and François Frijters intended to add sound to the film and Anton Zwijsen proceded to write the music. But a fire destroyed the studio and Zwijsen's music was never recorded. That is also why The Fiance from Canada was never screened in the movie-theatres.
