Storyline

The son of an Argentine chemist travels to Vienna, to solve the murder of his father. Step by step, he realizes that his father was internationally entangled in secret service machinations and chemical weapon sales, and ends up in mortal danger himself. Meanwhile, he also realizes that there is no connection between his father's murderess and those dubious activities. Her motive for killing him goes back much further, to a court hearing during the Third Reich...

One of the better Simmels
1 November 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of the 1970s Germany's film industry was looking for a new formula for success, since the public's interest in the Edgar Wallace films was declining. It found two: episodic sex comedies were the one, and movies based on the novels by Johannes Mario Simmel were the other. Here we have a film of the latter kind, directed by a former Edgar Wallace regular: Alfred Vohrer.

The settings of Simmel's stories were typically high society in some form or another, and had often a bit of intrigue, crime, and even murder thrown into them. So this allowed the filmmakers to go for glamorous characters, living a glamorous lifestyle, with glamorous friends and enemies. 'Und Jimmy ging zum Regenbogen' very much fits into this picture.

Therefore, the emphasis is less on the somewhat dubious story but rather on the surroundings. These people here live in big houses, travel by plane, use computers (yes, it used to be glamorous once), had contact with SS officers etc. etc. As non-promising as all of this may sound, there is nothing wrong with the way Vohrer filmed the story and overall this is certainly one of the better filmings of a Simmel novel. It is quite watchable if you do not pay too much attention to detail (e.g. the decoding session at the computer is unintentionally funny, for any semi-literate computer user) but instead try to get into the mood of the picture.
