Heinz Ruhmann should of been playing should of been playing Max Petersen instead of George Thomala. The character would of been more fit. The plot Concerns A Family in Germany , George Thomala, as pop,Hannelore Bollmann, as mom. The kids Heidi Bruhl, before she became a big pop singer, as the eldest daughter Monika, Ossi Wanka as Andi youngest son, Elke Abrel as Stupsi, she must be in he late 50's by now, the youngest daughter ,who has the use the bathroom every few minutes in the film, plus Grandpa, played by Hans Moser. This is a variation of Cinerama Holiday and The mystery of Scent, without big format and big sound plus more story and plot as well as variations of National lampoons vacations.Since the Peterson live in Germany , their trip to Europe,Italy, Italian Riviera , France, Monaco , Spain,? is cheap.The problem is a bunch of crooks, played by C.W. Fernbach as Director Antonowitsh, Mara Lane as Baby De Baronin, Rolf Oslen as Otto Muffler and Michael Cramer as Willi Boltz. The problem is that George Thomala chosen the very same new car that the crooks chose, in which Otto Muffler had put that,papers in the car on the right side of the door .When the next day, after George picked up his car, the gang finds out, they get Willi to go on his Motor cycle to follow them, where once he see them at a gas station he runs behind them ,where George backs up accident knocking his Bike down.Will ends up as the decoy for the rest to follow.Eventually Mara meets up with George and encourages him to flirt with hi to him ,that gets Hanna jealous, to distract him so the rest of the crooks to get the papers out of the car.The rest of the film is A German travelogue, Showing the beach sites of The Italian Riveria. Monaco, although princes grace does not show up. Eventually the truth is found out and Hans Moser save the day. Willi reform for Monica and falls for her.It would of been better if Heidi Bruhl had a song number in it .It's fair.12/13/12
