A Funny 1960's Cold War Comedy with four stars of Hogan's Heroes
This movie, like many comedy pictures from earlier in the sixties and the prior decade, includes some slapstick humor, a guy and a girl being pursued by bad guys, and a series of romantic misunderstandings that lead to outlandish situations and humorous dialog. In addition to that, add some major characters from Hogan's Heroes to a film that, again, pokes fun at some seriously misguided Germans, and you have a picture that is fun to watch, for those who get it. The setting for the picture is Germany in the cold war era, so in this case, the bumbling villains are East German communists instead of world war two Nazis.
This movie is probably not for everyone. If you are not fond of fifties and sixties romantic comedies that substitute somewhat risqué innuendo for graphic sex scenes, then you may find this movie to be too mild. If you thought that Hogan's Heroes' theme of mocking Europe's second world war oppressors was in poor taste, then you may find this film to be just as distasteful. If you hold the view that soviet communism was a great idea that was misunderstood and you can't wait for Vladimir Putin to restore it to eastern Europe, then you will probably hate this movie. However, if you are not among those who hold such views, then you may find that this picture contains some enjoyably ironic humor and is fun to watch. Just sit back and enjoy this light comedy with Bob Crane and Elke Sommer.
