Not bad, but rather vulgar military comedy in which Hans Albers may prove still for once that he can play the Bohemian. But he was 66 at the time and things surely do not go very easy anymore; parts after this film would be only more serious ones. Using Albers in the lead of this remake of a typically early thirties military comedy makes very clear which audience was aimed at: the elderly bourgeois middle class whose way of thinking was not changed much after WW2. As such this is also interesting viewing.

As for the entertainment value: some (visual) jokes and tricks are nice, but in general this old fashioned comedy is tiresome watching. However, compared to the direction this kind of comedies would go far into the 70's, this is almost a masterpiece. The double entendres are constantly in the air, later in time these would be upgraded by nudity.

Franz Antel directed many Heimatfilms, farces and so-called Tiroler sexfilms and combinations thereof far into the 70's. Using his oeuvre it would be an interesting research to ascertain the only seeming differences between these genres as well as the similarities in way of thinking. One result is already sure I think: narrow-mindedness.
