Nazi Opera and Jazz Together ,a conflict ,poltically. at that time.
This is one of the best German back stage musicals,but,i.m.d.b has and some mistakes.I just saw the movie and sent them the correction ,but they have not changed it yet.Werner Hinz is advertised as playing Ronny.Wrong! he plays Michele Donato and Pop musical composer Mac Dynar.Albrecht Shoanhals is advertised as playing Michele Danato and Dynar.Wrong!He played Maestro Hutter.Axel Von Ambesser,is advertised as playing Hutter .Wrong he plays Ronny.If they make these changes by the time this article is printed then ignore what I said.Beniamino Gigli makes a cameo appearance as himself Marta plays an aspiring opera Singer,who is studying in Italy,Mussolini controlled Italy.Her boy friend played By Werner Hinz aspire to be a composer of Opera and their best friend Axel Ambesser want to from a Swing band and put on revues.This is sure a double standard of the Nazi Regime.Well it turns out that Albrecht ,who is the maestro,discover her an n makes her an big opera star.Whether Marta is actually sing or is her voice dubbed is a question.The voice is excellent Werner finished his Opera ,but ,is discourage by the maestro ,who claims he need to work on it better.Lizzie Waldmuller is the cabaret singe and Axel interest.So Werner end up writing music for revues starring Lizzie and orchestrated by Axel.the numbers are good.There is another segment in which an excerpt of h Werner's revue is shown on experimental television,at that time.One number in involves a hug record disc with and a needle arm with chorus girls and Lizzie singing .Lizzie voice gets stuck and Ambesser shows up taking the worn huge needle and replacing it with a new one.Finally convince Albrecht to put on Hienz's Opera ,Marta discover that it's being changed into a jazzy Musical revue.Hienz first reject the making it back to an opera ,feeling it's too late,angering Marta,then he changed his mind and his opera is is finalized.A well entertaining dramatic musical from the third Reich .08/26/14
