No painful operetta numbers, no monarchic nostalgia, highly original dialogues and editing - "Jetzt schlägt's 13" is surprisingly refreshing for Austria's cinema of the 1950s. Just because it's so close to a well structured plot, you can't forgive its burlesque story. Two butlers (played hilariously by Theo Lingen and Hans Moser) suspect themselves of being mass murderers at the same time, but due to completely different reasons. Susi Nicoletti and Josef Meinrad did better (and funnier) acting before and after that, but the script helps them to get away with their lack of spirit.
