I finally recognized it
28 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though i.m.d.b does not explain this,I remember seeing the previews of this film ,in original language and Mexican subtitles in Biermosa Tabasco ,Mexico,in 1963 or 65.I had thought the long blond hair Prince was a girl.I thought it was about a girl who run away from something and find she inherited a royal legacy.I finally saw it in the late sixties on public t.v ,black n white.It was dubbed.It was funny too ,dubbed.Hearing Mathias Wieman speaking fast he's going to pay for the mess the boys made.I still thought the prince was a girl.But seeing the royal table scene where Ben is showing his bow and Arrow triggered my memory of the preview.Now I under stand the story.Eric Ponto plays Daniel Defoe and his book,Robinson Crusoe has been banned and his son Tom ,played by Horst Bucholz , is in debt and tries to borrow money from his dad ,but he refuses too.Tom ends up manipulating Romy and Ben to take his place in prison so he can steal the manuscript of his father book and sell it for money.The fantasy comes in after they capture Horst and tie him up ,her and the kids, to get the manuscript back,that she and the kids go to the palace,possibly to have Horst punish for stealing the book and to lift the ban.Romy''s mom is in the movie playing ,of course ,her mom.She and Ben work a a cotton gin ,at the time where children were slave labor ,rather than going to school and being children.Daniel Defoe,played by Eric Ponto,boards at her moms house.Gustave Knuth plays one of the black market crooks.This movie isn't too bad.I would say the dubbed version is more entertaining cause ,the wrong type of voices that was used.I think it's available at Germanvideo.net in v,h,s from in the u.s. 05/28/13
