A German Screw-Ball Comedy
5 February 2014 | by swgreifSee all my reviews

This is a funny and very clever comedy. Outstanding is Max Pallenberg, pater familias, officious head cashier, and a very confused individual whose language, facial expressions, general state of excitement carry on non-stop and in the largely stunned company of his colleague, Heinz Ruehmann, and set-upon daughter, the very wonderful Dolly Haas. Pallenberg, a Jew, was driven out of Germany in '33 and died a year later in an airplane crash in Czechoslovakia. The Jewish actor who played Kalapka died at Dachau in '41. He joins the sad ranks of Dora Gerson, Kurt Gerron, and many other. Heinz Ruehmann put in a fine performance as he always does. He prospered in Nazi Germany and even divorced his Jewish wife to further his career. I suppose he atoned for all this by his wonderful remake of the Kapitaen von Koepernick.
