These hand-colored lobby cards from the Lothar & Eva Just Collection make us want to find a print of the film.
Director Arthur Maria Rabenalt was born in Austria in 1905. He made films under the Nazis, beginning in 1934, and continuted to work through the 1970s.
In the picutre above, the woman’s outfit has switched from red & white to black & white. One assumes her costume change was a whim of the colorist.
In the image above, the colorist has colored the woman’s shoe the same color as her leg, making it appear that she is only wearing one shoe!
It’s springtime in Berlin, 1957. The stills from this cold war rom-com make us want to take a plane back in time.
Plane travel certainly was different in the old days.
The nightclubs look superior, too!
