Storyline

Die Nachricht von der Rückkehr 'Dandys' aus den Vereinigten Staaten löst allerorten hektische Betriebsamkeit aus: Während Kriminalinspektor Knauer sich die Akten des alten 'Kunden' kommen läßt, bittet sein Schwiegervater, der pensionierte Oberlandesgerichtsrat Zaenker, seine Freunde zu einer wichtigen Konferenz ins Palace-Hotel. Was ihm während seiner Dienstzeit nicht vergönnt war, soll ihm jetzt gelingen: Er will mit größter Raffinesse 'Dandy' aufs Kreuz legen und ihn endlich hinter Schloß und Riegel bringen. Er ist sicher, daß 'Dandy' wieder einige krumme Dinger durchziehen will - nicht umsonst nimmt er Kontakt mit verschiedenen 'Kollegen' auf. Die Gangster planen die schönsten Coups, doch wann immer sie zum Abkassieren antreten, müssen sie feststellen, daß schon vor ihnen jemand da war. Und dahinter stecken natürlich Zaenker und seine Freunde, von denen jeder sein Spezialgebiet hat. 'Dandy' versteht die Welt nicht mehr; er wird immer nervöser und macht schließlich einen ...

AMUSING CRIME STORY
6 October 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

After the collapse of his production company Cineforum Staudte had to pay his debts and would limit his work to mainly crime series for television and a couple of amusing features. This film is the first feature of this period of Staudte's life. It is an amusing and lighthearted crime story in which a number of robberies take place executed by a group of older and respectable gentlemen much to the dismay of a rival group of real gangsters.

These gentlemen are played by older and respectable actors lead by Marin Held. There is good company acting and everybody obviously enjoyed doing this film. Heinz Erhardt has the opportunity to recite a number of his silly poems. Hannelore Elsner is charming as Susan.

Well-written script; direction by Staudte is good craftsmanship. He already made a film in the same vein in 1965: "Ganovenehre", that I think is a better film.
