Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The script for this film was made by Erich Kästner using the same pseudonym
Berthold Bürger - as he used for "Münchhausen" of the same year. Based
on his own novel he made a fine script that was directed by Hans Deppe with great fun, though the film starts a bit slow. But after Willy Fritsch's first encounter with Hertha Feiler the film gets going and then we have a very jolly romantic comedy with good cast. Fritsch probably was the only one who could get away with a part as a professor who does research into the manner how people laugh and in radiant Hertha Feiler he has a perfect partner.
