Summary

Romantic comedy in which a soldier falls in love with a flighty girl.

Daantje Peters is the son of a grocer from Schoonhoven who, during his time as an army conscript, meets Betsy, the girl in the blue hat. In spite of the warnings from his 'roomie' Toontje, he asks Betsy to marry him. It soon dawns on Betsy that Daan is far too stuffy for her and she ends the engagement. She decides the army has far more exciting possibilities to offer for a girl like her.

The female lead in the film is played by Truus van Aalten, a Dutch actress who shot to fame in Germany at the end of the 1920s and who appeared in over twenty (UFA) films, usually taking on the role of a lively young girl who gets herself into all sorts of comical scrapes. Het meisje in de blauwe hoed was to be the only film she ever made on her native soil. The screenplay was based on Johan Fabricius' book of the same title.
