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!
13 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

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!
