Bombs Over Monte Carlo (1931)

Bomben auf Monte Carlo (original title)
Most of the music is sung by the Comedian Harmonists - the sweet "Wind Wafts over the Sea" and the rousing "Way of the Sailor".

Trivia

Hans Albers' role is called Kapitän Craddock. It inspired Hergé, author of the famed Tintin comic book series, to create Captain Haddock. In his first appearance, The Crab with the Golden Claws, Haddock even sings one of this film's songs. See more »

Cute!

This peppy little fantasy with songs is like Weimar Germany's answer to the Jeanette MacDonald-Maurice Chevalier musicals (the story actually bears similarities to "The Love Parade.") It's easy to see from this why Anna Sten was brought to Hollywood as a Marlene Dietrich clone, as the resemblance is truly uncanny. Peter Lorre (fresh from "M") is adorable in his little sailor costume, and there's even a glimpse of the Comedian Harmonists!
