fair but not excellent
7 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hans Alber Dominated the movie, even after the third Reich fell.Auf Der Reeperbahn Nachts Um Halb Eins, 1953 he upstaged Heinz Ruhmann.He was just a powerful personality.I saw that s shape of Hilde Weissner. I also saw the modified version of the Vulcan and the scene where he was impersonating Italian language .This was a way to get pass through the Nazi censors by references to Nazis official.Of course in the Residence hotel the orchestra was playing music from popular song,of the time," When will the lilacs bloom again and You almost saw Hilde's breasts and Hans butt too.The morality of the Nazi where a little bit different from the Hays code.I had to play it Twice to find out who the actress was who played the pawn shops owners Daughter .That was Hilde Sessak, who played Marcella.But the thief who talked with Alber, they looked like they were at an out door café at Great Freedom Street n.o.7 ,at Hamberg.The young guy with black hair who was Marcellas boyfriend.The i.m.b.d.,I could not find the name or description of character,they were , the characters talking too fast to pick up the thief name.The second time I realize Raymondo was Marcellas uncle whom she recommended for a waiter job to Percy.The plot was about a Swedish industrialist who gets bored one day and want to run way from himself.His daughter Ingrid,played by Charlotte Theile thinks it's a bunch of lies that the new paper Run by Nils Nilsen,played by Warner Fuetterer is the cause .They both start to search for him.Hans was acting like Munchassen in this film.The problem was that the story was slow and the humor took time.He changed his name,Percy,a few times as he changes his character.The sets and the photography is good with Hanses personality with a little Charlotte Theile,Hilde Wiessner. Sessak and the thief too all make it a little sexy but entertaining film of the past.The news reel in it .I'll shorten it.Nazis in north Africa.Fascist in Rome. Nazis in Barsabosa.Labeling the Brtish the enemy of France cause they bombed a Nazi Factory.All the misguided soldiers smiling in front of the camera cause they though they were going to win,Another thing occurred to me what propaganda that Goebbels had in mind on film.That there were no Jews in it.Except for Actresses like Hertha Fieller, who was half Jewish .Digital print available at Germanwarfilm.com 12/07/12 12/08/12. I was wrong it was Bessarabien not Barsabosa
