Franz Lehár’s often-staged operetta gets an early small-screen production in this episode of “Max Liebman Presents.” Anne Jeffreys shines as the title heroine, the wealthy Sonia Sadoya, who’s courted by the citizens of her small Balkan state in order to keep her money within the principality. Based on the 1861 play “L'Attaché D'Ambassade” by Henri Meilhac, the program co-stars Brian Sullivan, Edward Everett Horton, Jack Russell, and Helena Bliss. 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
