Helmut, a war orphan, is charged with theft at the time of the Berlin Airlift and faces a jail sentence of up to six years behind bars. The unfairness raises the anger of numerous people who decide to fight it.
I saw this one on a late movie back in 1972. I think it was made about 1960 but brought over to the US around 1962 or so.
The movie has actress Christine Kaufman(a former wife of Tony Curtis) playing a young girl who is kidnapped by a young man(Christian Doermer) who has always been obsessed with her and is looking for revenge for her and her family having rebuffed him.
At the time I had no idea it was a German movie that was dubbed in English as the subject matter made it seem like it could be happening in America.
I never saw it advertised on TV again.
Kaufman made a few more things but has mostly disappeared from the scene, I believe. She never became big in the U.S.
