Without Meyer, No Celebration is Complete (German: Keine Feier ohne Meyer) is a 1931 German comedy film directed by Carl Boese and starring Sig Arno, Ralph Arthur Roberts and Dina Gralla.[1] Boese made a number of films featuring Jewish comedians during the Weimar Era.[2]


Meyer, an ambitious young Jewish man, tries to pass himself off as a successful business tycoon in order to marry into an upper-class family. He has impressed the girl's father of his suitability but the daughter shows her reluctance to marrying him because she is in love with another man named Walter. Meyer mistakenly advises Walter to elope with his secret girlfriend, without realising he is sabotaging his own dream of marrying her. In the end Meyer happily settles down with his secretary who has always loved him.
