Der Kapitaen Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This German drama is a star vehicle which was apparently created specifically for the venerable and beloved German actor [[Performer~P62065~Heinz Ruhmann~heinzrühmann]] In it, he plays a freight-ship captain, Ebbs, who is given an opportunity to captain a Mediterranean luxury liner. The liner's passengers are "toffs," upper-class people, and the captain would much rather be with his greasy freighter crew than have to deal with these fussy people. This movie marks [[Performer~P210463~Joseph Offenbach~josephoffenbach]]'s last appearance on film. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
