Wonderfully designed film and solid adaptation of Curt Goetz' play; a big improvement of Goetz' own film adaptation of 12 years earlier. Certainly no part of Helmut Käutner's best films, it still visible that he was one of the great (neglected) talents of German cinema of the 40's till 60's.
Heinz Rühmann is making this film, almost unavoidably, into a Rühmann vehicle, and plays one of his best roles of the 60's, thereby overshadowing Ruth Leuwerik who does not seem to fit her part.
