Der Kapitaen


This German drama is a star vehicle which was apparently created specifically for the venerable and beloved German actor Heinz Ruhmann 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 Joseph Offenbach's last appearance on film. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
