Artists' Blood (German: Artistenblut) is a 1949 West German comedy film directed by Wolfgang Wehrum and starring Hans Richter, Dorit Kreysler and Fritz Odemar.[1] It was shot at the Wandsbek Studios in Hamburg and on location in mountain resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Kurt Herlth and Carl Ludwig Kirmse.


A successful clown wants to marry the daughter of a factory owner, but his prospective father-in-law doesn't want a circus performer in the family and insists that he takes a job at the factor. With a heavy heart he agrees, but then discovering a doppelganger her persuades him to take his place. Confusion soon arises between them.
